This is the aircraft Derek Piggott did the UK height record in and hail damaged the glider O0

No - that was a Slingsby T21 and this one wasn't made by Slingsbys.

From Wikipedia...
"Derek Piggott is perhaps best known as a gliding instructor. In addition he had success as a competition glider pilot winning three regional championships, was the UK National aerobatic glider champion in 1961 and set several national gliding records including the single-seat altitude record of over 25,000 feet in an active thunderstorm in a Slingsby Skylark."

 I was thinking of his flight in the open cockpit T21 when he was an ATC instructor and took a  VERY cold pupil up to a great height (without oxygen either) during the Championships at Camphill in Derbyshire to establish a new two seater height record.

So we were both right  O0     The photo is not a Slingsby built glider though !.

The black prop thing is, I think, a Velie Monocoupe, probably the model 90
but I'm just guessing ;D

I like the thread - very challenging, but feel bad cos I don't have any to fire in return

Close Andrewh.. but close enough.
"Velie Monocoupe Model 70...one of the first planes ever built for private fliers. Velie Monocoupes were built from 1927-1929"
I have a plan for a 1/4 scale one... powered by a OS 26FS  :D

EEEEugh, a wetmotor!

I love Diesels (and the fuel), but have given up with wetmotors.  Note to self - must sell them

Sorry about the model number!

Just Guessing, as always. 
My guess is a Verhees Engineering Delta registered F-PDHV seen at the PFA rally at Kemble

It looks a little too shourt-coupled for me!

'Brave pilots' eh! Remember the old pilots motto.... 'There are old pilots and bold pilots but, there are no old bold pilots'!
 That little aluminium delta looks very scary, :D it certainly took a brave and bold pilot to test fly that one for the first time but fly, it cetainly does.
