On May 31st, late afternoon, I was returning from San Diego to Palmdale after helping my sister move. After I had passed Devore, north/west bound, I saw a hang glider at under 200′ setting up to land just North of the freeway. There was no off-ramp there, and I was towing a loaded trailer, so I couldn’t get off the freeway to see if there was any need of assistance, or to just watch the landing. I also realized that the glider was landing next to a house, so I assumed there would be someone there to help.
However, I am curious to hear the story. Does anyone know who and how this happened? (I assume, but don’t really know, that it had something to do with the competition. I’m sorry I had to miss that.)

I didn’t get a good look at the bottom of the sail, so I wasn’t sure, but I did wonder if it was you for a brief moment, Jonathan. I never thought it it might be Bart Simpson. Damn! I guess I should pay more attention. 😉June 5, 2021 at 6:05 PM #12897Nathan HallahanGeneral Member
That was Zac landing out after flying 42.5km of 75.3km in the 3rd task.June 5, 2021 at 9:34 PM #12900
Ah. Zac. Makes sense. I didn’t get a very good look, there was traffic, I was towing a trailer, etc. But I’m glad it all worked out ok. I was curious, however. Thanks for the info. Glad it wasn’t Bart Simpson…
