Cheapskate Flyer

Postby choppergirl » Fri Jan 05, 2018 10:25 pm

I'd like to do Hang Glider Edition of "CheapSkate Flyer"... my snarky aviation equivalent of Mad Magazine Trash Tabloid magazine, that you'd jump on and snatch up before anyone got it, if you saw it in a small town airport waiting room lobby, or in the backseat of a passenger liner seat, or left behind in a photocopy machine at Lockheed Martin...

Email me your list ideas for snarky humorous hang glider cover story articles that only a hang glider nerd/geek would get... (!) Or hate mail. Which ever :-)
If they crack me up, or make me go ewww that's that's pretty bad, they end up on the cover...

Its true,
http://militaryhistorynow.com/2017/06/3 ... es-treaty/

The Heinkel He-111, the Luftwaffe’s iconic twin-engine bomber has famously been described as a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” [2] Outwardly designed as a super-fast passenger aircraft and civil cargo carrier, the Heinkel was really a purpose-built warplane from nose to tail. To further conceal its actual function, Berlin publically delivered 12 civilian 111s to Germany’s domestic air carrier Lufthansa in 1935.

I am included in that "We"!!

However, when I got up from rolling on the floor laughing at some of those clever headlines, it dawned on me that you might want to start a topic in the Blog forum to showcase your magazine.

But please try to keep it "somewhat" clean. Thanks.
