Just wanted to mention this is a picture of the very "first" Dawn being flown by it's designer and company owner, Richard "Dick" Boone.

Surprised him to find this on the net, let alone a non-us site.


Dick Boone designed this and many other inovative gliders. He should be credited for much of the design work that came out of Bill Bennetts company Delta Wing. Dick was an early inovator in the sport, and many of his ideas are credited to other companies. He does not get the credit he deserves for helping this sport progress in the early years.

Dick Boone made some beautiful gliders. I had a Dawn (156?)and liked it very much. You could pack the struts up into the sail without detaching them, so the setup was fast.They had no special flight aspects that I can recall.


I own the black comp in your pics, have several dawns including a brand new never flown one, I would be glad to send more pics, I still fly the comp and my 175 big one.
