Glider Overshoots P.S.

It was more than 60 years ago, when I did my gliding, as related above, as accurately as I can recall. (See # 13. # 15 or #19 above.)

Time has moved on and the French National Gliding Centre at Montaigne Noire, near Revel seems to have gone too.




The lessons that I learned there, may have been of help when I was having to trade height for speed following one propeller auto coarsening on overshoot at weather minima. To have attempted to retain all height might have led to a stall. My speed got awfully slow.
