Tomorrow (11/12/2016) marks the end of an era when VH-MSA will leave the club after 46 years. GGC purchased the Cub in 1968, at the time it was being used for fish spotting in Tasmania, and according to JB, many members were upset that "we were buying a TEN YEAR OLD" aircraft. I wonder how many pilots have got their towing endorsements on it and how many glider launches it has done since, I suspect possibly hundreds and thousands. A few years after purchase a Cal Air tug was purchased and MSA went out for a 'six week rebuild" only to appear a couple of years later, some things don't change.

Some years later the Cal Air was written off in an accident and the Cub was our lone tug for many years until we got SSO which a few years later also got a ground up re build and the load was again carried by MSA. Then, three years ago, almost to the day (Dec 7), MSA had a gear collapse on landing.

After much discussion and soul searching it was agreed that we should try and sell MSA and move on. So tomorrow Sat. Dec.10 "Ol yella" as Chipper called MSA, will leave us and head off to a new owner who intends to rebuild it back to its former glory, I hope I am still around to see the Cub back flying.
