There is a thread on Top Rated HG pics at http://www.hanggliding.org/viewtopic.php?p=266994

I just added a few of my favs to http://www.hanggliding.org/pics.php
Give it a few days ... it takes a time before SG approves submissions there.
I was clicking through the list, and low and behold, Hummingbird Resort popped up there as a paid sponsor for hanggliding.org Image

One of our Vancouver BC pilots is a unit owner there.
Never thought to ask them for official permission to land there.
Hmmm! 2 do list...

Mexico Thermal Avatar

Postby Fred Wilson » Mon Jan 23, 2012 4:55 pm

My Avatar is the ugliest Air to be in, in a Mexican Thermal Gaggle! Would that count in a contest to see who has the ugliest Avatar?
(I have to wonder if the black dots are supposed to suggest Shotgun Bullets and Flak bursts whizzing past!!!)

phpbb3 Upload Test of uploading a 300 k image linked from a remote url
- where it appears nicely sized to screen. Here, it reappears a full two screen widths wide.
This should be resizeable in the phpbb3 administrative controls.

My Hydraulic Fly, SkySports Sirocco (the first full double surface hang glider).
Painted by Charlotte, North Carolina artist Harry Roolaart.
It was born out of the style of "Yes" - the famous Rock 'n Roll band, artist Roger Dean's work.
