SHORT, Jim

In a sport marked by aviation technology and advancements, vintage sailplanes rank high in our hearts, like antique cars and wooden boats. This talk reviews some of the exciting history, people and planes of our sport. Especially in 2020, the focus is on the 7th IVSM in Elmira from July 4-11 where the best of the best will be on display and flying, courtesy of the National Soaring Museum, the Harris Hill Soaring Corporation and the Vintage Sailplane Association.
