  2. Dogfighting ---a very exciting pastime in the air over Makapu'u, Oahu, Hawaii in the 1970's. --- I wish I had taken more video of this activity and had better quality camera equipment at that time. It would look great with HD GoPro.

  4. Rough landing at Waimanalo Beach (from Makapu'u). ---- Thank God for sand. I thought I could glide a little farther to stay out of the water. I should have flared out sooner, with hands higher on the downtubes.

  5. Brought my hang glider in way too high, almost clobbered some friends at the LZ , but flared up and over them for a decent landing on the road on the other side. --- Don't try this at home.
