THE FIRST OF A SERIES: On his first flight with his new Cambridge sailplane, the Duke of Grafton (right) obtained his "C" certificate. This machine, designed and built by Zander and Weyl, is the first of a small series and has already proved itself with soaring flights of more than an hour's duration.
A Grunau Baby sailplane climbing steeply with the aid of the London Club’s winch. The wind is too far north for slopesoaring, but the clouds are evidence of plenty of thermal lift.
At the other end of the string: Mr. E. J. Furlong’s Cambridge II zooms skyward the rather emotioning fashion typical of the winch-launching.
AT THE WASSERKUPPE: Herr Wolf Hirth, recently returned from America, is making a fairly sharp turn on the Grunau and is seen over the open girder tail of a practice glider during the competitions now being held by the Rhon-Rossitten Gesellschaft.
The Cambridge University Club’s Cambridge I in tow behind an Air Publicity Avro 504, flown by Mrs. Crossley. This machine, with an Airwork Gipsy-Cadet, made some scores of tows during the week, operating from Mr. Alan Butler’s private aerodrome near-by.
A photograph of the Sutton Bank camp taken from Mr. R. F. Stedman's two-seater sailplane. In the air is a Grunau Baby.
This striking photograph of Bradwell Edge shows, down below, the factory chimney known to pilots as the "thermal indicator." Its smoke indicates the presence of a thermal current rising from the valley. When this picture was taken the competitor in the Grunau Baby was struggling to maintain his height.
