We often see the glider planes soaring above our place. So pretty to watch one plane pull the other to soaring height and then unhook the cable and let it gooooo. When I drive under the archway on M-115 when the pull plane first takes off, I automatically duck because they are so low to the ground still, I am afraid they’ll hit my car.
I happen to drive by the Frankfort airport last Sunday, when I saw a whole lot of people and planes. I drove in to see because I am nosy that way
A bunch of people from the North West Soaring Club were there, as well as passengers.
I am afraid of heights; the first rung of a ladder is about as high up as I’ll go, so this adventure is out of the question for me but you all can partake in this extraordinary trip.
Yikes the sun was so bright that day, the picachures are all washed out. But you can maybe see how that little glider bounces along the runway and then finally takes off here: Glider taking off
