The 50th anniversary of the modern hang-glider


On September 7th 2013, took part on the Clarence River, in Grafton, NSW, Australia, an enactment of the first fight of the modern day hang glider the 'Dickenson Wing'. The glider was designed by John Dickenson and flown by Rod Fuller 50 years earlier while the boat was piloted by Pat Crowe.

 The 2013 flyer was Anton King from the Gold Coast. Anton's father, Anton 'Tony' King, was a top flyer during the late1960's. His early Dickenson wing was used during this re-enactment. Paul Ransom was the pilot of the boat.
