Coyote Dry Lake

Our Spring 2006 trip brought out a dozen pilots, families and friends, four gliders, one paraglider, one R/C helicopter, and a Cessna 192. Clear skies and moderate winds made for good soaring conditions!

How do you ground launch a glider? With 2500' of steel cable. Sometimes... it's a slow tow back to the base after a cable break. Lynn Ericksen got some nice flights in his 2-33.
