This has to be one of the most beautiful sailplane videos on the web. I think this was filmed over Poland and you’ll see most of the flight is shot from a Puchaz trainer. Also great to see the Diana 2, probably the best 15m class sailplane out there. Enjoy this great video, watch them reach the cloud base.

This is one very interesting way of launching a glider. During World War II many of these wooden constructions were used to transport men and equipment, towed behind C-47 Dakotas. I don’t think this launch method was widely used since it is a bit extreme and one might argue, somewhat crazy. Anyway, here’s the video of this weird launch.
The ultimate outdoor movie? Hell, yeah!!! Check out crazy man Jean Loic Albert, one of the Salomon Soul Flyers, as he puts on his wingsuit and goes diving after a glider. I really like the part where he catches the glider’s wing. Really outstanding performance from both riders: Jean Loic Albert in the wingsuit and Martin Kroke in the glider.
