Slope Soaring at 10,000 feet

Post by Mike S on Sat Sep 26, 2009 5:50 pm

Whilst driving through the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California last week, I pulled into a layby for a rest, when a model glider went sailing past. We were at 10,000 feet and the bloke flying it was at the side of the road. He went up there flying most days as his local flying field was 200 miles away!! The weather allows him to fly nearly all year round apart from a little snow in the winter,on average about 16 foot!! He lands on the roadway when its quiet. Rolling Eyes
