Landing in a field
      #220156 - 10/31/08 12:27 AM

Did the last flight of the season on my Cherokee II sailplane yesterday. Took a 5000' tow and did some testing in dead calm air to determine the glide polar. to top it off I landed in the cut soybean field behind my CFI-G's house. Here's the video, was a great way to end the day!
