I first went to work for Birdman as a sailmaker. I left late in 1979 to go to California to work for Bill Bennett. During this time, Dave Raymond, Mark Southall, Cliff Ingram, all left Birdman and set up Solar Wings, situated next to the naughty knicker factory down in Marlbourgh town. When I returned in 1980, they asked if I would go and work for them, which I did. We were making the very successful Solar Wings Storm which was the first glider they produced.
