I would like to thank Graeme Henderson for asking me to assist him in the research of the John Dickenson story, and of how he invented the modern hang glider. The project planted a seed deep within my head that eventually lead me into building and running of this British Hang Gliding History web site.
During the building of the site it would not have been possible without the help and cooperating of the following early hang gliding enthusiast, manufacturers and pilots, to you all from the bottom of my heart I thank you. Although Graeme gave me the original idea, without your input there would have been no web site.

Please make contact if I have left your name off the list.
