[Video] Seaside Soaring

Editors’ Note: We found a link to this beautiful and exciting video of seaside ridge soaring at  Streckenflug.at.

Posted on YouTube by Balleka of the Devon and Someset Gliding Club near Dunkeswell, UK.

“Finally a day with a good southerly wind and a dry airmass instead of the usual grot associated with this wind direction. 5 DSGC gliders braved the rough aero-tows down to the Sidmouth cliffs, where fun was had on an epic scale. The walkers on the cliff tops seemed to enjoy the show and hopefully a few might risk a trip to our club to try gliding themselves. There was even wave off the cliffs which allowed all of us to climb high enough to easily glide back home. A fantastic days flying!”

    My 4 year-old son and I love this video. Could you identify the music?

    From the YouTube site, it appears to be “Disappear Here (Orchestral Armchair Version)” by Hybrid. Hope that helps.
