100 Aviation Wishes: This is mine, now what is yours?

100 Aviation Wishes: This is mine, now what is yours? | Gliding | Scoop.it
There is a joke in my household that goes something like this: Each time I fly with my wife, she sits in the right seat and mentally adds up the dollar amount of all the avionics, equipment and airplanes I "buy" as we complete the flight.

ZK-GAF

Callumkayak's insight:

 

Eon Baby ZK-GAF waiting for a launch at Taupo New Zealand at a recent vintage glider fly in. Many excellent vintage gliders there. GAF is the oldest flying glider in New Zealand and is owned by Don Grigg and John Currie who are instructors at the Rotorua Gliding Club.

 

Although I saw John launch I was not there on his return. I know that Don however had a flight (thermalling) that was greater than an hour and managed to make cloud base at 6500 feet.

Oh, you know. It was just another day in the Tetons last August. Take off from a ridge behind your house in Wilson, ride a thermal or two, and touch down six or so hours and 204 miles later.
