Linton Blades - Weinheim 1972
1 October 1972
Weinheim, Germany, is close to Heidelberg, about 30 mins south of Frankfurt ( by car )
This show was given for the 40th anniversary of the Air sport ( gliding ) club in Weinheim.
There was a 4hr show including display by a Fiseler Storch, Parachutists, Hot Air balloons, The Burda aerobatic team ( in Pipers ) & a display by Ladislav Bezak ( Aerobatics solo world champion )
The Blades were the climax to the show. One of the German papers below wrote "It was worth giving up a Sunday afternoon, just to see the [Blades] Team Aerobatics".
The following Newspaper clippings were kindly lent to me by the Luft Sport Verein Weinheim => www.lsv-weinheim.de - Many thanks !
