That field looks familiar

Who is this pilot; ? How did he miss thst . . ? seems like more than ample lift from that thermal-rich cloud behind him, dead center, cleared to 7,000. A rookie mistake, i should think.

good job Rick, its a good field to know. we should mow a strip there so we don't screw up his crops.

That camera angle makes the PW look much longer span. Whose wings did you boost?

Rick said...

I wish.

The guy with the longer wings made it home from our last thermal that day.

Thanks to Dennis for picking me up, and thanks, Kevin, for letting me fly the glider!

The right wing is longer because they forgot to put the fuselage in the middle this time.

Ftr, I departed Dean@4652msl arriving PMA IP direct@1700, over a nonlinear flightpath of ~19.7mi, a final glide ratio of 35:1.
