I really like watching Bruno's videos, here is a nice long flight.
I wonder what this area looks like in the sim world.

I never flew the open cockpit gliders whilst I was at the Long Mynd, flew k8's k13's k21'w and the k23, I did notice one difference, we had to wear parachutes just in case, yes, the open cockpit do look a bit scary

Flew a few of the K's basic instruments and just a map for x-country followed by the recovery crew if you landed out and no mobile phones. Also flew the much more advanced ASW27.
Enjoyed gliding but moved onto powered flight on my first powered flight I was told off for using too much rudder in the turns. Given up flying in the RW and fly whatever I want to in the virtual world.

My favourite part of gliding was the winch launch, this is a very long cable being used in this clip
Aerotows are not as much fun.
