It looks like a pretty rugged little bird.

      It's been a while since I've seen a 2-22.  We had one at a small grass 
airfield I flew in back in 1973.  A student came in a bit low, grazed some 
telephone wires, and ripped the fabric off the bottom.


There was not a lot of activity at the airport today.  I did note that
the Civil Air Patrol had a second training glider in the hangar.   This
is a Schweizer SGS 2-33, from 1967, so it is not as polished as the one
I showed previously, but seemed recently refurbished.


And, yes, Nathan, I am carrying a camera in my car at all times. The
X-E1 fits very nicely in the center arm rest. :-)
