Well, in terms of music and homebuilding, this guy is fairly brilliant:

La Motte Du Caire, though paradise would be a better name.

The Dutch, world-wide renowned for their subtlety have never really liked the way our German friends woke everybody up on a gliding camp (megaphone and loud shouting), thus a less invasive means was invented....

Technically not a flying video. Put it on fullscreen+HD anyway:

Same author as the La Motte video, but this time a summary of last year:

Interesting vid... flutter, aerobatics in a non-aerobatic plane and a very low slip in the same video:

A Portrait of Sebastian Kawa, much of it about Patanogia.

We all knew that would happen eventually. It's surely going to keep happening too with how much adrenaline junkies like to push the limits. It's just how it is I guess.

I recall one that hit the railing of a bridge a couple of years back - the results were permanent there. But, we all make judgements of our own capabilities.....

That's the same guy as this one (he followed the *splat*), though he did survive that bridge. He has had 2 or 3 other hits in flight plus some jumps where he got scarily close to sailplanes while those pilots never saw him coming.
Let's hope that if he Darwinates himself it doesn't involve others...

Some people use the 1 inch per G as a design guideline. Some don't:

A very interesting documentary from the BBC, telling both sides of the story of the massive allied bombing in WW II

Those who think you only have taildraggers and nosedraggers, think again:

Amazing chopper "landing"

A soaring video. Especially watch the outlanding from 3:30 on:

The trailer for Air Racers:

Another nice soaring-vid:
