March saw only two envelopes (a 65 & 90) sell, whilst for April we add a complete V-90, a 77 bottom end, a ‘disabled’ basket, a rear rack for your vehicle (to enjoy the joys of trailer-less lightweight ballooning), a pilot restraint, quick release, a front half of a 13hp fan cage and a prop for a small (aprx 3hp) fan …. Also in ‘Other’, a Lindstrand burner bag in really good condition.
We have had a welcome update of items listed in ‘Other’ from Allan Nimmo, the larger items remaining as listed previously. Also from Martin Rich with a hefty price reduction on G-VRVI as a complete kit.
Martin Axtell reports that some parts of his stolen balloon G-CILM, have been recovered – namely the basket – in trashed condition and cylinders, with serials and covers removed but still full of fuel and fan. This was largely due to Martin keeping an eye out for items to turn up in ads – which the fan did, leading to the other items. The envelope and burner are still missing.
Finally Kim Hull is looking for a standard, small balloon size LBL outer burner frame with central gimbal (not the older style). Let him know on firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help ….
