Rain, bassano video

It’s been quite unstable weather the last weeks here in Oslo, and not much flying. Today we went out with the Scooter to Ekeberg, and did a few tows with the remaining students in between the showers.

I spent the easter in Bassano, I did not write much here on the blog as the internet connection there was shit. I did however make a short video from one flight Ove and I did in the afternoon in Bassano. It was almost dead air, and we just glided down. The landing was quite interesting though – as you can see in this video.

Ove had landed just 10 seconds before me, flying the same path, and I’m pretty sure it was the wingtip vortex turbulence from his glider that made my right wing drop so suddenly. There was almost no wind, no turbulence, and I had plenty of speed. Without enough airspeed it would have been a rough landing after dragging the wing. That sideways slip upwards was a quite interesting expirience…

  1. Hi! Nice attitude you entered fast, nice correction… but there’s a house in the right side… rotor perhaps?

    Personally with my Talon when I’m landing in interior conditions I put myself in the upright position earlier.



  2. Ove I did remember your landing I was sitting in front my camper but my cam batteries are empty.

    I normally used to make a right turn from the other side because there are no buildings. Its much more easier…..


  3. Interesting landing! I had a bad landing at Sørem a couple of years ago due to the same reason as yours; I landed in Ove’s trails, lost control and almost hit him.
