“Here’s how soaring gets started here in Lithuania…..
Endless cable loop runs from one end of the kids training runway. Tow cable attaches to the “shoe” and allows the altitude seen here to be reached..pilot releases at the end of the cable run, lands straight ahead on the runway over-run.
Huge..I mean really huge euro’s tied up in the ultra-modern winch truck…pratical flight training…..”
