where?....just off the ground..what?......something that I had a nightmare about recently!
The PIC looks as if he's just come back from a bank robbery & the guy at the back looks as if he has just spotted the cops!
Just teasing. I gather that is a chute recovery system on that flying 'thing'?

CW You are a funny fellow!

I wish OK the above pic is a hang glider tug...... they launch the HG from a trolley and he gets towed up just like a glider. The stick and rudder skills of the "bank robber" are pretty good too! During Tug ops I have not seen the pax. Me thinks you were at ILW last weekend

Pics above, CC almost gets the gong!
Wittman tailwind = Correct

Deathrap almost ..... Drifter

Bo parked next to a craft class origamy project Savanah

Varieze (sp?) Correct, not sure which model

I wish et al,

Look in the background of the picture, to the left behind the tail of the hang glider tug: Does anyone know what the old fuselage next to the fuel tank is.

CW, yep, a recovery chute.

Jaba, very good skills, including landing and stopping in the pit he has just passed. Don't know about his captain skills though, his passenger fell out a few minutes later

ILW? POPS.

ABX, would imagine it was a 182.

Chuckles wins the cigar! Guari it is. He probably landed there a few hundred times!

OK, now a really easy one. Capt Fathom has the first guess!

jaba you mean to tell me that a 'thing' not much better looking than a hanglider itself actually pulls hangliders up? Hell talk about the cart pulling the donkey!
I have towed up model gliders before with large R/C planes & we always attached the glider to the CofG point on the tow plane because if connected to the tail the towing model was almost uncontrollable. I see the attach point is at the rear of that 'thing' that's not much bigger than a 1/3 scale tug anyway!
Anyway would be amazing to see that in action, kind of brings a whole new meaning to 'tap dancing' on the rudder pedals hey!

As a foot note I gather that wearing shorts during flight is ok 'cause you don't have much in the way of 'intruding' bugs up that way?

You gave that one away Pinky! A bit out of my local area, which was Lae. I didn't get out much, only to Kerema once.

The Jane's has been retired!
