1. On 19th August 2012, the weather was perfect, and for the first time in paragliding history, about 50 pilots landed on top of the Mont-Blanc after taking off over Chamonix, almost 10.000 feet below...
    The first paragliding top landing occurred in 2003, and since, only a very few pilots had managed it.

    Le 19 août 2012, les conditions météo étaient parfaites, et pour la première fois de l'histoire du parapente, une cinquantaine de pilotes on atterri au sommet du Mont-Blanc après avoir décollé de Planpraz, au dessus de Chamonix, presque 3000m plus bas...
    Le premier posé au sommet du Mont-Blanc a eu lieu en 2003 et depuis, seuls un petit nombre de pilotes y étaient parvenus.

  2. Hang Gliders and Para-Gliders from up and down the Queensland coast gather at the Eungella ramp west of Mackay for the queen's birthday long weekend. Lots of hang-waiting and a little flying.
