One airport I like to visit, (KSEZ), has significant runway slope. I will land uphill with up to a 10 kt tailwind and need less runway than landing into wind. It is normal practice at this airport to...

I looked at the picture and saw the three C-17 and kept looking for Chinese aircraft. Then I looked at the Wiki article and noticed the reference to data theft. I had not heard of the Y-20 before.

I'm going to guess that you are not in the habit of flying in pre-start contest gaggles. 100 ft altitude loss would take out several other gliders in some thermals I have shared.
