Oklahoma Hang Gliding
This topic thread is suggested for blossoming hang gliding in the state of Oklahoma. History of hang gliding in Oklahoma could be one of the strands of roots for the topic thread. Current and future aspects of HG in OK state? Possibilities. Changes. Pilots. Pilot experiences. Sites. Open new sites. Etc.
Rick, any early 1900s' newspaper clips for HG in OK?
Here is a general aviation history starter link: OKaviationHistoryGeneral where HG won't be obvious at first levels.
Recent research by John "Southside" resulted in some distance-site record statements (else uncertified; John has researched for 34 years in HG; he is retiring from flying: "I'm sure there are a lot of new records that are not on the page.") Hey, John Scott, thanks for all the research you have done throughout the years! :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :
