LUDLOW GLIDER PILOT WINGS !!
« on: September 13, 2014, 11:23:07 AM »
Now , im no expert on wings and when i saw these on "the bay"   i thought to myself wow !!!  then a closer inspection revealed all is not what one would expect , to say the least !!!! 

i think the seller has been looking at wings in the "pinks greens and silver wings " book !!

Anyway  you decide , my mind is already made up !!

I've had these wings for many years....no markings. I think that plate bearing the Ludlow name is a spurious add-on. Probably super-glued in place!

Ian if you care to check PAGES 135/137 of the "More pinks greens and silver wings "   you can see whyi was very dubious of them

I am no expert, but I do not like the faint markings. I do not have first hand knowledge, but have heard there was someone in the 90s producing these and most of them had faint markings. Maybe a wing collector could chime in.
