SILENT SERENITY: A pleasant impression of a Professor sailplane over the Midland Gliding Club's site at Long Mynd, Shropshire.
BEAUTY: Two views of the Wien when in the air. The unpigmented dope used makes the wings almost transparent.

WELL AWAY: The "Wien" just after being launched. The double cord which is used can be seen.
A GENTLE ONE: The Wien just landing. Herr Kronfeld's landings would not break the proverbial box of eggs.
THE VISITORS: Herr Kronfeld has on his right his two friends Herren Flinsch and Ball and on his left is his mechanic Herr Pruhn
