GCV Hangars Freshly Painted
The Gliding Club of Victoria’s Hangars have received a fresh coat of paint and they look fantastic!
The opportunity was also used to correct the wording on the towplane hangar from “VIC” to Victoria, this helps bring the wording inline with the clubs name (Gliding Club of Victoria). Many thanks to all involved with special mentions going to, John Tribe, Fabian Gaida, Peter Martin, Peter Hokkanen and Delatite Steel.
