This week, the Jonathan is back from the Guy Englebert workshop. This aircraft is representative of the first modern hang gliders. In the years 1970’s, a few precursors invented a new way to practice aviation. We include pictures of the Jonathan, a link to a website about the birth of the hang gliders and a video depicting the early trials of these forerunners of the modern deltaplanes. The Jonathan will be the object of a study prior to a future restoration. This restoration is not for the near future as we have still a lot of project to complete before putting our hands on the Jonathan.
Vincent found a website about the restoration of the PBJ-1J (the B-25 in service with the US Marine) of the Commemorative Air Force.
You will find hereafter two video about aircraft manufacturing. One of these video (discovered by Philippe) shows the assembling of the Airbus A-340, the second is a short film about aircraft manufacturing in 1910. These two films demonstrate the progresses from experiment to an industry.
You will also find a link to the index of bamm 141. This issue is the last one where Jacques Schelfaut acted as chief editor. Jacques is now taking a second retirement after producing some nice bamm’s.He will still be active at the Museum. It was (and it will always be) a pleasure to work with him.
Hoping to see you soon.
Thanks to Vincent & Philippe for information or links included in these ews.
