50's-80's. The first casualties were the 'Bessonneu' hangars which needed regular servicing to keep them going.
I had defected to power by the the time the glass ships arrived,but no doubt the MGSP were aligned to the wood fleet.
Spares were not a problem as Slingsby used common parts on so many of their products,and of course the machines were low tech.
We have yet to have evidence of what problems are being found in the Viking fleet,but i suspect it will be 'flagged up' to fit the situation.
