Filmed by Carl Boenish, pilot / skydiver Rich Piccirilli, together with Jim Hanbury and Brian Johnson, launch a family-sized hang glider off the top of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. In mid-flight both Hanbury and Johnson release themselves and free-fall from the kite, form a brief 2-way - then skydive into the valley below.This extraordinary short film has never before been publicly-broadcast…until now.
A collection of random video collected from various pilots over the course of the week.
This hang gliding competition is the biggest non AAA comp on the calendar.
I wasn’t really focused on filming for this event as I was competing so there wasn’t a huge amount of content to edit.
But I hope you enjoy it anyway.
Music. Zed’s dead dialogue from the Pulp fiction soundtrack, Gold on the ceiling from The Black Keys.
All filmed on Drift action cameras available at RideTheSpiral.net :)
