P Jarvis Posted September 3, 2018 Share Posted September 3, 2018 (edited) Last week I watched a friend spin his wing and crash to the ground from 50 to 80 ft face down as the wing recovered to a spiral dive It is so awful as it was a totally “unnecessary” accident, he had a 30 acre mown field to glide into, but instead tried to complete a tight braked turn with a stopped engine to land near us Despite 7 years Flying, he had relatively low hours and did not have the experience or SIV situation knowledge to fly safe.. if he had he would have recognised the Spin entry and put his hands up to release brakes I urge everyone to get training or at least research and learn active flying and SIV situations and recovery techniques !! Please DO NOT be complacent Edited September 3, 2018 by P Jarvis 2 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
