In This Issue
Dudes, just think of the footage! These are familiar words to those who know Matt Wright, who recently had another epic clifftop flight in his ASW 20, this time exploring the north coast of Devon. Just three weeks later, Matt was forced to ditch his glider in the sea during another clifftop adventure. You can read about both flights in the June/July issue of S&G. There is also a six-page report on AERO 2013 and advice on gliding safaris Down Under, where the crocodiles eat mostly Japanese and German tourists, if you go by the language of the warning signs!
