New Addition: AL-33 Towline Glider

This AL-33 towline glider has traveled the world.  Built in 1979 by Andres Lepp of Estonia, he flew it at many international events around Europe and the Americans – including the 1989 Free Flight World Championships in Argentina.  It was then sold to Lee R. Hines of California.  Lee also flew the AL-33 at events in the States and Europe.  Now, thanks to a donation by Lee R. Hines, the AL-33 has a permanent home in the museum.

One wing on this glider is covered with red tissue.  The other has been left uncovered so the wing structure can be seen.

Thank you, Lee, for helping to grow the museum’s collection!
