He landed the glider via heavy crab into the upslope
of a big hill in a small clearing..very impressive..
Fast forward to 2:40 for the impatient..lol..

The pilot of the first video is showing how not to do it, the second clip is ok, the man seems to know what he is doing. He was low but fast enough to pull the glider up a bit if needed, used the speed brake for landing.

I like the second one best. I use to do some gliding in the Canadian Air Cadets..all in older Schweitzer 2-33 Gliders, higher performance gliders at York Soaring Assn, here in Southern Ontario.

In the second clip you can see the high tech advancements made via the f-16 like bubble canopy, a nice smooth quiet ride.. the glass instrument panel and the button crazy stick..others include the fiberglass and carbon structures.

The ASG 29 boasts a glide ratio of 50 to 1...!!

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...her_ASG_29

If I could afford it..this would be the ship I purchase. I will post a link here and in a separate topic to this guy in Utah that has great flying clips in his ASG..cross country, aerobatic and more.
