My dear Jemiba,can I ask you;


why we put it here,it is some not all Slingsby aircraft and projects,and we
have already this topic; http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,9741.0/all.html

The Yak topic you refer to is a monstrosity and it will be duly closed and split.

Any topic that lists a manufacturer's types will be automatically transfered to the "Designations" sections.

Any type that has enough material to justify a separate topic will be split into "Early" or "Postwar" or "Aerospace".

Oops, I've said to post identification drawings, but done nothing stilly yet.
I catch up on this now.
