“New” Wills Wing T2.

After the crash and after totally demolishing my dear T2 I was not sure what to do to get a new topless glider as fast as possible. Wills Wing have mid June as their first delivery date, and I just could not wait that long. But then I remembered that Steinar J. had put his one year old T2 up for sales. He prefers flying his Falcon 3 instead and ended up not using his T2 so it only has about 5 flights and maybe 5 hours of airtime. So basically it is a new glider. So I decided to buy his glider, and this evening he came over with it. So now I am ready for the upcoming season.

The new glider does not have the UVM sail, but instead ordinary mylar. Further, it has Litestream uprights instead of Slipstream, and finally of course not my colours. Still, it is an almost brand new T2 and I can use a couple of the a-frame brackets from the old glider, buy a couple of new brackets and uprights, and change the a-frame to Slipstream.

I had insured all my hang gliding equipment, and this will probably save me a lot of cash now. I have just sent in the papers to the insurance company, but I do not expect any problems. I am not sure exactly how much money I will get but it should be enough to pay for the new T2.

    Congrats with a “new” glider! Nice that everything went fine. Ruining equipment is a mental test!
