Hi All

To get the ball rolling, a reminder of the FIRST EVER Whisper gathering.
30 April & 1 May at Paradise Beach (FAPX) between Jeffries Bay & St Francis

Whispers, all motor gliders & anyone interested are welcome
There is a thread going on at whisperaircraft.com, General Chatter with specifics

We'll see you there
Cheers

After the 5 plane line up pic was taken, three more whispers arrived bringing the total to eight whispers! Pics of the additional three below:
Special thanks to those who flew VERY long distances. Dave and Carl from Howick, Albert and Morne from Vryheid, Gary and Trevor from JHB. =D>
It was a proud moment seeing eight whispers together and was made possible by a great bunch of attendees :D Special thanks also to Dave Taylor who's idea it was to have the event and who made the arrangements.
Hopefully we can make this an annual event. Judging by the enthusiasm displayed by everyone at this inaugural event next year should be even bigger :D
Most importantly it was a safe event and everyone is safely back home :D

Nope, hinged inlets on top of cowl are AeroVee, normal cooling inlets are Jabs, mostly Jab 6.
