Post subject: Paraglider vs. Eagle

Sent to me by one of my crazy buddies back in SoCal who flies paragliders, this video (not of anyone they know) shows an Eagle getting tangled in the lines of a paraglider...he manages to deploy his reserve 'chute but it's a wild ride....

video.msn.com?vid=556c...link:uuids

I tell my friend this is why the gods invented aluminum tubing and spruce spars, so we could fly fixed wing as we're intended to. He had a 'chute collapse a few years ago, fell and landed hard, was Medevac'ed out of the landing site, had a concussion and broke his pelvis in a few places, doesn't remember a thing about the accident, spent the better part of a year in rehab getting to walk again, and is back out there flying these things.
