James Hobson showed his 1962 k"Rogallo Wing Hang Glider" at Dockweiler flying site, to editor of E.A.A. sports aviation magazine, and on the Lawrence Well Show for national and international audiences. See robust history at:


As Joe Faust first pointed out in 1973, that is not a "Rogallo" anything. Rogallo was a total fraud, and this contraption has nothing at all to do with hang gliding. Like Barry Palmer's efforts, it was a one off that played no part in modern hang gliding.
