    Default The assembled congregation will recall the Gingham Glider from Colditz.

    As seen in a documentary some years ago.

    Well, this Monday on C4, another set of lunes is about to attempt to launch another replica glider (sadly not gingham) off the roof of the castle.

    Monday C4, 21:00.

    I shall watch with interest.

    Pity it's not gingham though.

    Much prefer an ASH26 myself. Far more aerodynamic.
    I couldn't give two fornicators! Yes, really!

    Possibly more difficult to build in the right shade of gingham.

    A lot further than it got.

    The idea was simply to get over the wall & land down in the vaaaaaalley, boyo.
