Default Shortest distance flown by wood?? :D

Made it a whopping 16.5 nautical miles (30.5 kilometers) downwind from
the airport today. had a great landout in the perfect spot as heavy
rains last week made most of the plowed fields quagmire. put it in
some grass endrows at the crest of a hill. the field was
(surprisingly) dry, must have good drainage. we were actually able to
drive through it. Dont worry, no spring tilling or planting had been
done, no crops were injured in the production of this flight.


Flew to even closer fields in the K6, just 8.54 statute miles from FBL
at an L/D of 16. Should have kept that $50 vario I sold to you!

Hi Tony,

Nice shot! Thanks for sharing. She's a lovely glider.

Hey, what are all those nice, fluffy, white things in the sky?

It's funny how the sky always looks great in the photos of your most
embarassing landouts. I have this picture on my desk with my Grob
Astir in a field. Non-soaring types always comment on the beautiful
composition, colors, light and shadow, etc. All of my soaring
buddies take one look and ask: "how the **** did you land out on a
day like that?!"

i posted another with the same kind of clouds, except they look even
better. this is one of my favorite pictures of the glider. Found the
perfect alfalfa field to land in. check it out.

A friend of mine landed out in the field next to the airfield on his
first flight in his Ka6. 200m cross-country?
