Chance Oviedo January 15, 2016 This is why you flag your line. Light green line against light blue sky on a sunny day is not visible at all. First Last January 15, 2016 shut the fuck up neg dreakheart January 15, 2016 0:06 pause , that's about 30 centimeters trond olsen (nightworgen) January 15, 2016 his undies are brown now Workedformula Formula January 15, 2016 T-cas idiot use T-cas system Yakav8r55m January 15, 2016 A couple of things come to mind here, 1st why are people calling the fixed wind pilot a dumbass? Because he could not avoid a tow line he could not possibly see? Is the location even known to fixed wing operators as PPG training area? The only error that I see the FW pilot make is that he did not increase his lateral separation with the PPG. Kem Hayes January 15, 2016 When I had my first few hours of flight instruction, my instructor and I were flying in a C-172, 180 heading, when a Pitts Special flew under us on a heading of about 130. The Pitts guy should have seen us, and the tower failed to advise us for traffic at 4 o'clock. Some people huh? Scott Cozart January 15, 2016 I was flying my ultralight trike one day and a dumbass in a plane just like that flew under me except he came in from behind me I did not see him until he was rite under me. Scared me and pissed me off too. Maxomotos Rob January 15, 2016 lucky peter Müller January 15, 2016 can someone explain me for what that line is for, only skydive and have no clue about that thing. miro267 January 15, 2016 Super video Evan Schildgen January 15, 2016 The para glider has the right of way to any other aircraft in the area. It wasn't his fault it was the Cessna pilot who should've gone around him Andrew Phillips January 15, 2016 The term "clotheslined" almost got more serious. traci beacer January 15, 2016 What are you doing flying your paraglider so close to that plane? Billy Ray January 15, 2016 Just wondering if both parties had an aviation channel radio ? Adam Thorpe January 15, 2016 Why was the plane flying right over what appears to clearly be a paraglider/parachute drop zone!?!? Crazy! RuleofFive January 15, 2016 The Airplane pilot should have seen the Paraglider and given him a wide berth.What an idiot! Norm Lawlor January 15, 2016 Hope you where ready to release Adam Edgar January 15, 2016 the line would have automatically released if the plane had struck it. All winch operators install a fail safe called a "weak link" on the line just in front of the paraglider connection point. This is usually only capable of just a little more strain than the towed weight plus a little winch drag. An aircraft hitting this would have absolutely broken the fail safe so the glider pilot should have been fine so long as the "weak link" was actually installed?
