As I told in the previous post, here you see the uncutted footage of a face to face situation with a vulture flying in the same thermal.
This happens more and more often to hang glider and paraglider pilots.
Unfortunately, the action cam does not allow you to notice some particular, but I can tell you that when you fly like that, with a bird like that, you watch in the eyes each other….and is something great!!!
You can notice that the bird flies in control, opposite to me (sometimes masked by my left wing) till the end of the thermal… it seems that it is gone… but he’s over me… like waiting for the glide togheter….
….and so it is!!!
In the final work I will explain very well behaviours like that to let you understand the nature of the vultures in the air and the free flying concept too.
But…against any expectation, I get in a good condition very fast. Good enaugh to fly again…staying very carefull during landings….
So… I shot some good ones! 🙂
This is a snapshot of a footage I’ll publish in the next days. Can you see who’s behind my keel?
It is a footage I will use for sure in the final work, but obviously cutted due to whole timing.
But I’ll be glad to share the uncutted version with you in the next days. I think expecially the pilots will appreciate the dance in the thermal with a vulture and the glide we made togheter before separation on tifferent targets.
