We almost had a similar situation involving a H-5 pilot about to launch. Thankfully [someone] was a bit more at...

*IT* will catch up to him. *IT* always does. Doing foolish, high-speed proximity stuff like this eventually invites "IT" to join in the fun. No-one can outrun *IT* for long. No-one.

So many frightened little 'twats' here. Have many of you not been listening to reports of labs providing false positives for too many cases? Have you not been aware that hospital administrators are starving for money to keep their employees and hospitals in business? The administrators are receiving...

Dead man flying. Too many of these 'pilots' are making a bad name for sky-sports in my opinion. I've also been hearing (don't know if it's all absolutely true) that there have been some recent cases of paraglider pilots are suing other free-flight pilots for mishaps and the ushpa ends up in the midd...
