Dumb move #1: 3 H2 pilots decide Wolcott was the place to go on Sunday, 1 Nov 2015. Wolcott is *not* a high wind site, it has been advertised that it is not a high wind site..... It doesn't matter what wing you are on, topless or single surface, it is not a high wind site. Why? Because you land down in a hole with upwind obstructions that make the air near the ground extremely turbulent. And the air above ain't much better again due to upwind obstructions. Dumb! I can only hope the outcome was better than in Dumb move #2 below
Dumb move #2: a couple of (mini wing?) pilots decide to fly the north end of Green Mountain in mixing downslope with the biggest leni ever parked over the Front Range.....Look at still image below vid. Who is the guy packing up the wing? I don't recall seeing him or the woman with him before. Who in their right mind would even consider flying off Green in mixing downslope? And on the NW face of Green? Dumb! This one resulted in Flight for Life extraction.......http://denver.cbslocal.com/2015/11/01/p ... -for-life/
Enough! Pull your heads out of your asses people!
I fly because it releases my mind from the tyranny of petty things . . .
