Careful!
Video-Safe and Sane Landing Approach-NOT

If you are a begginner, be sure not to watch this clip.
Everything done in this landing approach is all wrong.
Death or serious injury could result from duplicating.

Clip is on my video downloads page:
http://homepage.mac.com/pnaton/FileSharing17.html

Filenames: Broadband H264 version: SAFE LANDING HD (sweet) 3.7 megs
WMV9 (not as big or clean) Safe Landing.wmv

(Story: Landing at Peterson Butte May 06, Plane: Phonix F3, 3lbs ballast on board.Pilot: Me. Coming in from big thermal, wind did 90 degree shift to the west, no slope lift left - large boundry layer set up tripped by the west face, reverse flow below 100 feet, wind blowing into big hill, using the BL to pump more energy through the turns, dowwind landing. Pilot survived.)

Glide Fast or Fail

Hi Paul...Greg Cameron here from the Torrey Pines days. You and Charlie were always an inspiration to me, and I have to thank you for all I learned from you guys. I've been out of it for far too long, so I'm looking at a 3D foamy or something to get me back into it. Glad you are doing good Paul, Merry Christmas!
