Walkaround #1024

"778"  AS-K21

These photos were taken by Jamie Denton 

Photos directly below were taken at Lasham Airfield, Hampshire, England on 16/09/2006 

778 is Lasham Gliding Society's basic glass fibre trainer and aerobatic trainer and is one of the most docile and forgiving training gliders ever made. It is worth noting that one glider's instrument layout is rarely the same as any others as the owners often replace factory fitted instruments themselves. Also, there should be a yaw string on the rear canopy (just behind the middle strut on the top) but this was missing on the day the photos were taken. Where I have only taken a picture of a feature on one side (e.g. of a canopy release), the matching feature on the other side is identical.
