About this Plan

Golondrina (Swallow). Simple all-sheet chuck glider.

A simple profile model of the Sligsby T45 Swallow.

Quote: "Another joyful model that can be done in an afternoon and after this enjoy a good time flying. This is the SWALOW sailplane that was very popular in the state schools of Flight Without Motor in Spain in the late 60s and crossed the skies of Somosierra and Ocaña. Large numbers of them were made in the Aeromodelling Schools.
The photos are of the construction this Christmas by our partner and well-known friend in the field of VSM and Aeromodelling, Miguel Gonzalez Muñoz [model photo & more pics 003, 004]. Greetings friends,"

Hi, Mary and Steve! So long no write...
As Antonio stated, many models of the Slingsby T-45 Swallow were made back then in the Spanish aeromodelling schools, following this plan issued by the Air Ministry. Please find attached a translated copy of it [see supplement file]
The first two planes of this model to come to Spain went to the royal Aero Club of Toledo in the mid sixties. Later on some fifty of them were bought to be used at the Gliding Schools of the Spanish Civil Aviation Authority, painted in a peculiar red, white and blue livery, which gained them the nickname of 'Pepsi Colos'. Photos of some of the Spanish Swallows can be found at: http://www.aviationcorner.net/galler...

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
