This is pretty damn beautiful, not to mention astounding. Got a minute and 23 seconds to spare?
Andy Jackson Airpark is near and dear to this heart, being the second high altitude flight I did after my basic training back in around ’97. Parents-in-law lived in Moreno Valley and so the hang glider went with me every trip down.
What you’ll see is two consecutive loops on descent, getting up to 93 MPH on entry of the first one. Then, he swoops the LZ low—I estimate about 70 MPH—converts that speed to altitude (know your applicable physics and aerodynamics), and waxes it in for a no-step landing right on the orange cone spot. Awesome piloting.
If you’re in the San Bernardino / Riverside area of SoCal, take a Saturday afternoon and go check it out. It’s unique in all of the hang gliding world. …Oh, BTW, on my 2nd and 3rd landings there, I overshot and overflew the end of the landfill edge. Landed unscathed in the sagebrush below.
