Museum acquires original Dickenson hang glider

An item of local and world aviation significance has been donated to the museum collection. It is the third in a series of gliders made by John Dickenson and flown at Grafton. His first two craft are no longer in existence. His design incorporated a suspended seat and a triangular frame which allowed the craft to be controlled in both pitch and roll/yaw by weight shift. Dickenson is recognised as one of the pioneers of the modern hang glider.
