At the start I'm flying about 55 knots, you can hear it quieten as I pull back just before the 45 downline - you can see the air speed indicator (top left) reducing back to around 40/45 knots - normal flying speed. Entry in to the humpty bump - straight up and over the top - is at about 110 knots - pretty fast for a glider. Normal flying / thermalling is pretty quiet but even doing this you can still hold a conversation without having to raise your voice - the mic's are probably a bit overly sensitive.jamesh wrote:Blimey - never realised glider were so...creaky....whistley...
Sounds like you were pulling some +/-G on those!

Aaah, so I'm not the only one with peculiar collections then!!twocvbloke wrote:My hobbies are mostly old telephones (50's onwards mostly), quality vacuum cleaners (with the odd Hoover thrown in)
I once took part in a Cold-War re-enactment night photoshoot in a museum... It was a surreal occasion and I found it quite strange to begin with (I'd never modelled before!) but tuned out to be a lot of fun!
