John's fast build was delivered to Shadowlite on 6 Aug - pic below.

John flew regular gliders for many years and is now keen to add the "motor" part!
Hope to see you airborne soon John!

Hey Ollie, how about some pics/news of your gliding machine? Surely Shadowlite must have finished the build by now??

Not sure what will come first, my retirement, my zimmer frame or my Whisper!!!!!!
Visited George last Friday to check on progress.
The good news is they currently have a dedicated team assigned to the Whisper.
The bad news for me is that they are building three in parrallel - three sets of wings, three sets of fuselage etc. They say April. I say April which year. Lets hope I am wrong.
Building Jab's like a sausage machine with one sale a week currently. Very nice crowd but boy do you need to be patient!!! :oops:

Rumour has it that Ollies Whisper Manufacturer has designed a "Whisper Zimmer" to keep Ollie in the Loop while he waits for his Aerie to come off the line........... :arrow:
