Meanwhile, Kirby Cadet Mk III XN246 has been derigged by Southampton Air Museum and appears to be languishing in a shed with one face open to the elements, judging by a 2019 photo on t'internet. She looks to be in a sorry state. Sad. Did my first solo in her at Manston in 1977. If Solent Sky have no plans for her, it would be nice to find her another home. A shame that she's now so unloved by an organisation that was supposed to be looking after her and preserving her memory. And as for winching, my club (Welland) still has a Tost winch mounted on a Bedford RL truck !
