A couple of years ago I was given a large supply of aircraft colour slides, unlabelled,  which included the four

below. I have disregarded these until now, but feel they could be included in the aircraft showcase. What I need to know, if you can help, is the make and model of these gliders - I know nothing about gliders. I am guessing the first two photos are the same machine.

GG looks like a Bocian to me.. wood construction, long narrow wings and the elevated rear seat are markers.

I think the first glider is a french aircraft called a Wassmer Bijave, the second is a Schempp Hirth Janus and the last is a Grob 103 Twin 2.

 

Yep, here's the link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wassmer_WA-30_Bijave

 

Thanks Mike

 

i flew the Bocian when instructing at Euroa but that was 40 years ago. It gave an audible sigh when you entered its very gentle spin.
