Looking for a 1-man wing rigger for a DG-1000 by Heinz Gehlhaar

Dear Sean Fidler by Ben Hughes
Get a grip man. Using the death of a pilot at a competition yesterday as a carrier for a self-obsessed monologue about how right you were to turn down your invitation to the event? Classy stuff. I see you're also deleting comments from and banning from your Sean's Sociopathing Page anyone...

Anyone? Learned to fly there with Lyn Bachtell and Karl Rhomann. Amazing airfield. First time flying there from Bluefield, it took as while to see it. Definitely did not look like an airport!
