News came through from Sweden a couple of days back via Ake Pettersson
and Peter Goodale, that two times World Champion Goran Ax was fatally
injured in a traffic acident. Goran was a competitor in the World Comps
at Waikerie in 1974 flying a Nimbus 2 - the supership of that era.
Here is the text of Ake's email:
It is with great sorrow that we are told, our legend Göran Ax, our
most prominent gliding pilot, on Saturday February 24, deceased in a
traffic accident outside Landskrona, South Sweden.
Goran was aged 74 and was reportedly still active in the sport:
He has been honoured with a page in Wikipedia in Swedish (Google
Translate could be your friend)
Another sad loss to the sport ....
