La belle Libelle - Llano, CA
The guys purchased an expensive new (but old) toy earlier this year - a 1971 Glasflügel H-201B Standard Libelle sailplane (or glider). They are off to Crystalaire today to fly in chilly weather (below freezing at 9 am).
My son I. - ready for take-off.
"I gotta see a man about a sailplane." Instructor M. and my husband P. talking sailplane talk.
Update: "Glasflügel" is German for "glas aerofoil" and "Libelle" is German for "dragonfly" - thank you, Martina!
