Chuck’s Glider Supplies of Ohio
USHGA region 9 director Chuck Slusarczyk was an innovator in hang gliding and, subsequently, in powered ultralights.(1)
The colors of Slusarczyk’s Brock 82 matched those of his vehicle. (I am sure the color match was better than it appears in these images, which are from old film and not first generation.) Its asymmetric variation of the Brock standard sail pattern in 1974 is reminiscent of the patterns used by NASA (Chuck’s earlier employer) in its test aircraft and spacecraft during the 1960s.
The flute (or whatever) music accompanying the film of Chuck’s momentary battle with the wind curling along the lake-shore bluffs (see under External links) does not impart the appropriate ambiance for that situation!
