So what happened?

Recommended Posts


No idea who the pilot is, but I stumbled across this vid on youtube and was curious what went wrong... I am guessing aggressive manoeuvring close to he ground, nasty thermal over the car park (see the clouds above). I am guessing he survived but it does look like he ended up facing backwards which doesn't seem like a good idea. Thoughts?

By the looks of it... Moderate winds and thermic. You can see him enter and shoot up just before he gets the collapse...

I Fly in Strong winds and also in strong thermic conditions but never when you have strong wind and strong thermals combined.

If the air is very active i will not do aggressive manoeuvres.
