Hang Gliding Videos

Hard Going at the Devil's Dyke
An afternoon flying at the Devil's Dyke on my Wills Wing U2 160 in a rough north westerly. I eventually manage to work my way down the ridge to Truleigh then return back to the Devil's Dyke for an easy top landing (although some walkers could have made that more interesting!).

Return to Flight
My first flight since the crash and the repairs to my glider - a complete baptism of fire as my first flight since the repair is an aerotow at Plumpton!

My Hang Gliding Crash
It had to happen one day - I crash my hang glider. Unfortunately, the impact was so hard the video stopped and didn't capture the actual crash but I was fortunate to be able to walk away and the glider was repairable!

Hang Gliding at the Devils Dyke
An enoyable flight in light winds at the Devil's Dyke. Still adjusting to the new harness, I'm over cautious and fly away from traffic (and the lift) and head to the bottom landing field. I almost completely fluff a bottom landing as I'm still struggling to get on the up-rights!

An Ugly Landing
While still getting used to my new harness, I bottom land at the Devils Dyke and am not quite prepared for the wind to be so far off to the west!

Firle Flying in the Rain
A couple of not so good flights at Firle. The second flight was cut short when it began to rain! The video reveals a little problem I was having with my harness which I failed to rectify on my second flight.

Flying at Firle
Some lovely flying at Firle in East Sussex and some November thermals added in for some excitement.

The Accident
A potentially serious accident observed from my keel camera. This video edit tells of my personal experience from the moment I knew something was wrong to the point when I decided that I had to land and provide first response. The pilot involved has consented to me publishing this video.

Two Flights at Swanborough
One of my personal favourite videos. Highlights of my two flights at Swanborough and that pilot swooping at the start has to be Luke on an Aeros Target.

Takeoff and Sunset at the Devil's Dyke
Nicos films my takeoff at the Devil's Dyke as a catch a sneak flight after work. After landing I'm rewarded with a fantastic sunset.

A Prolonged Top to Bottom
An extended flight at the Devil's Dyke. After takeoff I connect with a thermal and John McB. can be seen just below flying his Sting. By some fluke I'm able to stay aloft for 18 minutes before conceeding and heading to the bottom landing field.

Stormy Skies Over the Devil's Dyke
After resisting pressure to launch before the storm, my glider gets a good wash in the rain before the storm clears and I embark on a top to bottom. Miles then follows on his paraglider and rewards Nicos and myself with a classic landing!

Scratchy Downwind Uphill Landing
After waiting for what seemed like an eternity for the wind to come on to the hill, I takeoff and quickly realise it's going to be a challenge to stay up. What followed was an uphill downwind landing as I try my best not to land in the crop and deal with the wind now coming more from the South.

Perfect Landing
After being winched, I perform a rare perfect landing on my Aeros Target. Filmed at Mendlesham in Suffolk.

Too Windy For Me
One of my very first hang gliding videos. After deciding the conditions were too windy for myself, I point my tripod mounted video camera to the skies and film the flying activities of the day.

A Busy Day at the Devils Dyke
A busy day flying my Aeros Target amongst paragliders at the Devils Dyke. I have a near miss with a paraglider and end up bottom landing, concluding any more flying for the day!

A Rough Day at the Devils Dyke
A pretty quiet day at the Devils Dyke. I'm one of the first to launch and the early part of the flight I hit a few rough spots of air. Eventually the lift drops off and I end up in the bottom landing field.

Bo Peep Highlights
A very short film showing my takeoff at Bo Peep and first initial beats along the ridge. Unfortunately I fiddle with the camera and switch it off mid-flight (note for the future, don't fiddle!).
