Olympia 456

Details

Built for the 1965 World Championships, one of only two produced.  This machine has been retired for technical reasons and was donated by the owners, Mark Wills and the late Keith Green. It has beautifully restored by Mark and Keith over the last few years.  It enhances the "Bob Brown Hall" very well.  Mark Wills, himself a school teacher and gliding instructor at Lasham, oversaw the positioning of the 465, suspended from the roof of the new extension, which was facilitated by the hire of a "Nifty Lift", the local Travis Perkins generously allowed us a 50% discount.
