Some videos from YouTube video creators we thought deserved a place of their own!

There is just one word that describes this gliding video, 'Stunning!'

Wellensegelflug im Rheintal / Wave Gliding in Rhine Valley



Uploaded on 27 Nov 2011

This was a truly historic moment in the history of flight. We covered the first glider race live through the mountains of New Zealand's South Island - over 300 kilometres. We had multiple cameras in each glider, two AS 350 helicopters (one relaying microwave for the onboard cameras - one was the HD camera ship) and live GPS data being sent back to the production base using multiple Iridium satellite modems. It all came together - and the story we told was amazing. See Gladiators of the Sky DVD for the full story. Contact for more information.

Le vol se déroula le 11 juin 2013 à St-Rémy-de-Provence au Mazet de Romanin - FRANCE

OK, just one more of these funny gliding videos. Persevere with this one because it does get quite funny around 1/3 of the way in! Not sure about the glider paint job though. Plenty of 'g-farce' experienced here by the pilots victims .....
