Mike Bird

We regret to report the very sad news that Mike Bird has passed away. Following a long period of poor health, Mike died peacefully at his home with family present.

As a major figure in British Gliding, a record-holder of distance flights, a frequent entrant to both National and regional comps, a friend to many, and as the perceptive and highly amusing author of the unique Platypus Papers, Mike Bird will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with friends and family.
