The Langelius 12 Foot Glider

25 years ago Bob Langelius and Dave Acton constructed this 12 foot glider an English design called The Thermalist. Dave built the wings and tail, and Bob built the fuselage.

Jan's first attempt at towing it 25 years ago resulted in a crash. What you see in the video below is his second attempt with much better results at the 2013 Free Flight Nationals.

Tom Juell was there with his iPad to capture the images and video seen here.
