Very interesting. Thanks! I was getting the same impression from the Youtube comments ~ cloudbase can drop suddenly. Actually I have experienced that before when hiking in mountains.

Does anybody fly with a bubble-level instrument, to detect which way is up in a situation like this? LOL

Can someone please explain this?

It's a scary video. But can someone please help me (and probably others) understand what happened? I understand "cloud suck" can eat up a glider into a cloud, and then if unable to descend fast enough or fly away from the cloud, then hypothermia may set in because it's literally freezing at the top ...

Vannopen, Havermyer, I have a couple Utah friends who want to drive down too. What's your contact info. I'd love to connect you, and figure out where to meet y'all.

I'm planning to come up on Friday night, late. Then will be ready to fly Saturday morning.

Owens Sept 21st

I'm going! Have a driver (my wife) who can chase us XC. Have radios. Looking forward to flying with some people. Message me, or reply, or call/text if you're going too. Will be a good trip.

Definitely want to go Sept 21st!

Definitely want to go Sept 21st! Unfortunately can't make it for Labor Day. Have plenty of experience lately with big air.

Anybody doing the Central Utah Red-Rocks fly-in Sept 24-29th? I realize 29th is the Sylmar party, would be an epic week!
