Thank you indeed. Suggestion - send her to a garden show with a camera while you sneak away gliding: she'll come back with some great shots and you'll come back with a smile. :)

Ace shot, but at the risk of sounding non-green, it's gotta have an engine if I'm getting in it. I don't suppose the overall outcome in the event of a calamity would be much different, it just provides a better sense of security at the time. In my book, you've got balls to do this, lol.

Think of it this way, Phill, there's less to go wrong and no need to worry about the engine stopping. :)

ADMIRED in LANDSCAPES 4U

I can imagine the sound of the rush of the wind as you glide down to earth ...
but some say there is no sound of the wind ... who is right ? ;-)
3 years ago.
tiabunna has replied to beverleyplaya
Yes, there is indeed just the sound of the wind going by, Bev. But it's the movement of the glider through the air that causes the apparent wind, so with no glider there's nothing to create wind noise.
