Summary
  • A one-man glider is launched by a bungee cord. In the background some onlookers and a 1930's old car. On the glider appear the letters "A.U.E.G.C."
Biography
  • The A.U.E.G.C. (Adelaide University Engineers's Glider Club) membership was confined to students enrolled in the Engineering course at the Adelaide Uni., while members of the Gliding Club of South Australia consisted of men from various walks of life, and included some power pilot members of the Aero Club of S.A. The A.U.E.G.C. decided to build a glider. Having located plans and blueprints in an American magazine for a "Zoegling", they obtained permission for space and the use of University workshops during the summer vacation of 1929/​30. As soon as the exams were finished, construction commenced and their glider was completed at a cost of L.17, and test flow successfully in April of 1930. The flight was performed at Tapley's Hill.
