Hang Gliding Pictures

This past weekend we got the chance to do a little hang gliding. Initially, I wasn’t too keen to suspend myself from a kite and get dragged by a small plane, then released, only to have to find my own way down. But I figured, what the hell, I’ve done acrobatic gliding before … this is just one more skill to learn before I can become a super-spy.
In the end, the weather started getting a little too turbulent for hang gliding (or not turbulent enough, I wasn’t too clear on that part), so I never got my turn. I did get some neat images of R and a friend. We even convinced one of the pilots to free up space in the tandem sail plane (or regular glider).
