Eclipse Gliders SK90 / SK96 / SK98
 
 Eclipse-SK-01
 
Made in 1976, the SK90 was the first glider designed and manufactured by Eclipse Gliders. A number of '90s' were built and mostly sold locally. The company policy was to continuously build improvements into its products thus giving rise to numerous designations.
 
Also made in 1976, it is believed that only one SK96 was constructed. The design incorporates a wider nose angle than usual, reduced billow and radial tip battens. Its owners were Simon Murphy (photo), Graham Rock, Andy White and Peter Kerr. The machine was later fitted with a cambered keel which reportedly improved the handling. The last owner landed the glider in the sea - end of SK96.
