    Thanks for posting this vid. I've been a glider fan for many many moons now.. but the way that bloke throws the glider around is mighty impressive.

    I have done aerobatics in a Glider, but will not pretend to be anything close to this guy.
    What most powered pilots will not appreciate is how much more difficult it is in a glider, where the secondary control effects have such a major impact on the handleing.

    That inverted low pass was enough to stir anyone. Very impressive
