A documentary about hang gliding pilots in Texas, pioneering towing and designing the necessary kit in 1989. They are going for records in quite harsh terrain. Interesting kit including oxygen bottles and barographs with rolls of paper. Not much to help you fly better in the UK though. 40 mins.

We've had some good feedback already about this section - thanks! The more eagle-eyed will note that I've done some more work on it too. If you have any articles you'd like us to include, please email them to myself and the Nova Editor.
