Gentleman, secure your gear.
This is an email I have received
yesterday from one pilot. Name of the pilot has
something stupid last night. I was going to go
fly with another pilot and I threw
the wing in the back of his truck without
securing it. Well, what do you know, it blew
out of the back of the truck and was run over
by another truck. There are 5 holes the
smallest is approx. 1-2" in diameter and the
largest approx. 6" in diameter, and all of
them are on the underside of the wing. Only
one line was damaged. Can it be repaired?
Desperate pilot ..........
Used Lift 28 for sale. See used
Paul in the air again.....

Those of you who would like to be

the shoulder straps want to slip off add chest
strap to your harness as I did.
The picture says it all.
