When will the original or a replica of the 1962 Hobson Rogallo Wing Hang Glider show AGAIN or freshly, respectively, at Dockweiler ???

James operated the wing in 1962, at least, maybe 1961 ....(must scratch the record carefully yet; I may soon get to review Jim's "green scrapbook". We have at US Hawks a full topic running many pages just on James Hobson; see that for much more.:idea:

This is a clip from a 1962 magazine published by the Experimental Aircraft Association. A request of the family steward of the original hang glider has been made to bring the wing to Dockweiler; it is hoped that the family-friends of the family will grace the legacy of Jim Hobson by bringing the wing to Dockweiler for examination, measuring, and photo-shoot.
