The first hang glider air hop have been made ​​in the area of Karlsruhe (especially on a hillside in dernähe of King Bach in Pfinztal). Soon, however, it was necessary to string the new hang glider. It could be a flowered cotton fabric be purchased cheap, what the slider future nickname "Bliemchen" earned. Unfortunately, this proved "Bliemchen" as a short-lived consumer goods. During an abundant inclement weather we had gone out again to a suitable slope.
First, none had quite the courage to start with the strong wind. Finally, we wanted to venture a try. No sooner were gliders and pilot brought into starting position, the aircraft made ​​a strong gust of wind, the pilot lost his balance and fell sideways. The hang glider struck on the floor and broke. "Bliemchen" to his pilots literally wrapped around the waist, the repair work was unthinkable.
