The 30th World Gliding Championships have come to a successful End
After eight competition days filled with intensive and demanding flights the World Champions in the 15m, the 18m and the open class have been found. We congratulate the new champions on their victories. The airfield Luesse and the team of organizers have provided the setting for fair competition flying. The well established infrastructure of the high performance training center Luesse, a suitable airspace and last not least the thermal conditions of the surrounding area have done their part in guaranteeing a smooth and safe competition.
Luesse in Action
A great opening ceremony was held at Belzig market place on Saturday, August 2nd. The Lufthansa stewardesses and stewards did their part to make the presentation of the national teams a most attractive event.
Our next highlight was the air show on Sunday, August 10th. Together with many spectators we enjoyed sophisticated aerobatics of gliders, motorized planes and models. Luesse has become a regular airport with frequent departures and landings of the Ju52 and the Antonov double decker. Also many historic gliders and airplanes to be marvelled at.
And now the winners are known! They received their prices from Minister President of Brandenburg Matthias Platzeck and Silke Kaden Lufthansa at the price giving ceremony on August 16th.
