Once again we see the newer items leaving the List with two Cameron Z-105 envelopes, two Concepts and an Ultramagic H-77 complete notified as sold. Koen in Belgium seems very successful in placing good condition 105/120 bottom ends too – three leaving the List this time.
As we have seen at Zebedee, older equipment, particularly T&C baskets / C2 burners are slow to sell these days, there being so many out there which have outlasted their all-ripstop envelopes of the 1980s.
A last minute rush of ads for this month’s issue sees 315 & 300 envelopes and a complete 250 at the large end of the scale enter these pages, together with a Z-77 envelope, high houred N-90 and really nice (now anonymous) Cameron Z-105 envelope with just 69 hours. Also within are some tanks, several burners, a fan, some rope and two good condition Dittel radios …..
So for the 26th time (!) your scribes wish you all a Merry Christmas and that 2014 really will be the year for finding that long sought bargain!
The first UK event of the New Year will be the Dante Group’s 42nd Icicle Balloon Meet on 4th/5th January. Please note the new flying / briefing site at Marlborough Common, whilst the social centre will remain as in recent years at the Elcot Park Hotel. See www.icicle.org.uk for further details.
