Well, today was Otto's birthday and the 40th anniversary of a gathering of enthusiasts interested in personsal human flight - which thus began the worldwide sport of Hand Gliding.

Here's just a couple of pictures (of many) taken at the celebration. And, to commemorate this event, a marker was made and presented to those who were at that first gathering, 40 years ago.
