Looks like fun Kerwin! I can't tell how good it makes me feel to see you out there so much again!
Yeah it's great to be able to do it, I paid for it though,
last night I came home worse than the plane, we were both crippled up LOL.
I'm better this morning but the twist needs to have the wing taken off and looked at.
All I can say is heaven forbid any of you reading this get struck down, stroke or what ever you need to come back fighting. And this hobby and guys like you really help.
THANKS

Well I'm up early this morning, analyzing the crash. Things happen in slow motion, but they happen so quick.

Now the wind had been picking up all afternoon. It was varying 5 to 10 out of the southeast. twistfield's runway is north south. Now aloft the wind was alot higher.
I was taking her over to the northwest and doing alot of wind soaring and what I call a high all altitude landings with ground speeds of less than 5 mph, while sitting in my chair.
Now the plane had just crossed the west edge of the runway about 30 ft from where I'm sitting. ( I was a bad boy I was sitting on the edge of the runway) when I kicked alittle rudder to it, she came right at me. I threw some left aileron to her and thats when she hit the left wing tip and cartwheeled.
The only damage I seen so far is my left aileron pulled the ca hinge up and out.

Now for should of's, would of's, could of's. I should of been flying behind my grass barrier. If I would of quit flying when K49 left. And I could of came in more from the south.

Thanks Dan, if we just knew the town and the holic's name we could put a pin there. That way, when we're traveling, we could see at a glance who we might run in to.

My new field will be in Sulphur, LA. here is a link. It's a nice field and I am excited about it!!

Glad you K's got together sounds like you had a great day sorry to hear about the crash but awesome Pics K50 excellent to see and really makes me want to get out there

You can stick a pin in Garfield Road, Poestenkill, NY for me

David flying in 2 different places on the same day is great
never had that glider before but sounds cool

Dad great to see you back again.
Still waiting for my Cuz to cut up his 4*60 sheets so I can get you a PDF copy, I just can't afford to do it where I can do the whole sheet at once.

The turf farm is at 1075 E Telegraph, Washington, UT 84780. I tried to put a pin on it but I don't think I have permissions to edit your map.
