Have been told a very scary story regarding this one . I am going down at the weekend to check it out myself, and may buy it as a project

The biggest flaw with the early Eagles and Sparrowhawks is that there is only one air chamber per side. One puncture and you've lost the whole tube.

Didn't buy the Osprey, as I had to workand by the time I had wangled some time to goand view the guy had just sold it . Hope someone didn't pay too much for what sounded like a project.

Found a Sparrowhawk though with a 60hp . Just need some time to go and see it.
