High Hopes in the French Alps

Rescue Mission!

So yesterday, it was relatively quiet on launch, until….. this happened!

One of ‘the’ students very first flight, landed him up dangling in the trees… please take note this was one of ‘the’ students, not one of ‘ours’, I hasten to add!!

An hour later, the rescue arrived, they’d had busy morning, no idea what else was going on in the vicinity!

You can see the blue glider caught up in the trees as the rescue helicopter approaches. Incredibly, the chap that was in the glider, was back up on launch, how he got down, I’ll never know?!  but when the rescue arrived there was no-one to rescue! That’s about it, otherwise a normal working day, with another one to one student who is doing very, very well!
