Wow, that didn't work out too well. Do they normally tow more than 1 gilder at a time?

I don't know wether to laugh or cry.... Ok it's funny :)

I don't know whether to laugh or cry... OK - those seemed to be mostly foamy gliders... funny :D

What were they thinking? :D

#6 acetech09 Oct 01, 2012 02:06 PM

They obviously weren't.

7/10 for concept, 2/10 for execution, and 10/10 for entertainment.

had to happen
 
It reminds me of the mass warbird launch at the NEAT Fair... do a search on that one... Fun

The one guy seemed so exact about where everybody's plane had to be.
I blame him :)

Two made it to altitude. It was that one bonehead in the middle of the pack who blew it, probably piloted by the same genious telling everyone what to do.

Huge differences in towing behavior between the full scale plane and model. The full scale went to low level minimum flying speed flight to give sailplanes the opportunity to get in line and fly straight. Only when order was established and verified did he climb at all.

The model towplane pilot firewalled the sucker and immediately assumed high angle climb status, before all sailplane pilots had their trim straightened out and were in-line, in control. He was a large cause of the fiasco that followed. Note that all the sailplanes did not crash. Perhaps four of them did, a fine showing for such a terrible tow job.
