Please review all towing matters before doing towing of a hang glider. Mistakes can be deadly.

I just simply Love this Video Clip of these Guys having a Grate Time! I approve. Well that said, there really should be a law against that. No one should be allowed to have that much fun! I Loved it when the Pilot did the push off from the shoulders of his friends, His Ground Crew, Correct? Ever Pilot should have His own personal ground Crew. I am making strides so that I will be well equipped for My first Flight in Eleven Years Six Months and counting.
Yes I wilkl have John as My Crew Chief. I will have Bob and Joe, I might have Dave C, and possibly Pil9ot X also. When theHarnes gets taught and My feet leave the sand for say just one foot, the experience will be glorious! I will truly be undergoing for Me personally it will be mY: "FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX"

If you look carefully (follow the tow rope), you'll see a faint and tiny hang glider up in the sky. That's Bill Cummings being towed up by his wife - and fellow hang gliding pilot - Terry. The photo was taken by Donnell Hewitt at Padre Island (and can also be found here).

Please forgive my somewhat rude, brash Comments. But I really do not mean any harm. But I have just been re-watching this Post. I realy should let You Guys know that making this Video and then posting here was a really wrong incorrect thing that You have done. For I have not Flown in 11 Years 5 Months 13 Days! My not being able to Fly is something that I must deal with. So You can imagine how my Blood is boiling, How I oh so wnt to do a day like the Flying day that you just Posted.

This is just plain wrong!

Good By Chris
