Nice to see Blanik so far away from her country of origin! Very nice photo, Mohammad.
The problem was not in Blanik itself, the problem was that Austrians performed full aerobatics far beyond the permitted total aerobatic hours. It was like racing with your oldimer car. Unfortunately EASA grounded all L-13 disregarding this fact. Fortunately though, L-13A with and L-13 retrofitted with reinforcements to the wings can fly again :-)

EP-JAE crashed int his airport in 1998, caused serious injuries to the front seat pilot and the plane was totally lost.

I got my license on JAE. Too sad to see them disappeared.

Very good shot that shows the character of the Blanik.
I spent almost 100 happy hours in Blaniks.

The Blanik is a nice glider. Sad they are now grounded due to steel fatigue detected after a crash in Germany this summer.
