tungt inomhusflyg

Hallå all goda inomhusflygare

För de flesta av er är jag väl ökänd, för några kanske okänd. Ökändheten härrör säkert mest från mässorna i Frescati och Sollentuna när Sven Pontan , Georg o Birgit Törnkvist, Lars Tolkstam, Sven-Olof o Violet Lindén och  Johan Wallin m fl gjorde lufthavet osäkert.
