The Olympia was a British re-design of the pre-war German glider of the same name, intended as a standard class for the 1940 Olympic Games. Three Chilton/EoN Olympias were built in Australia, this one by Norm Hyde of Australian Sailplanes in 1959. In later years it was owned by the late Mike Valentine, leaning on the wing in this shot. Mike was the first partner I had in my own aircraft. Today the Oly is still going strong in the hands of my friends Phil and Diane, based at Bacchus Marsh.
