 This Glider was used by Steve McQueen in the movie "Thomas Crown Affair" under the registration N9860E. I don't know if Steve McQueen really did fly it (did he had a glider licence ?) but it appeared as such in this movie.

Cheers,

Olivier

 just a side note... Regarding the gliding sequence in The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) with Steve McQueen as pilot... filmed in New England. Close-ups of McQueen were filmed on the ground and a local glider pilot flew for all other footage. I'm embarrassed that I don't know the pilot's identity... he was a friend of my father (who was asked to be McQueen's double for the film, but declined).

 The pilot's last name was McMasters.Steve McQueen was in the glider mounted on a tripod for filming cockpit scenes all done at the former gliderport in Salem,New Hampshire off of Brady Avenue,now a golf course.
