John&Patti's wonderful adventure travel blog

 

 

 

I wanted to get a ride but the ceiling closed in before...

most sail plane are towed upward via airplane, but this wench device...

WWII glider transported infantry behind enemy lines, especially on D-Day

Elmira is considered the soaring capital of the world (or maybe country, or possibly Chemung County NY). We watched as several sail planes were launched, soared around and finally landed. We found that you can catch a ride for $100 and I was excited to try that (Patti, not so much). But first we went through the museum. By the time we finished the cloud ceiling had lowered to the point where they were no longer flying, rats. Hope to return to try it out.
