..

The Park Was Used For

the cross country (10K) glider event as part of the annual events
at the Muncie AMA facility.

Vehicle License Plates Were From

New Hampshire, Utah, Montana, S Carolina and Virginia.
A Maryland came one evening to watch.

For 5 Days Several Participants Took Turns Launching

their gliders looking for thermals to gain the altitude to make the trip out and back.

Gliders Are Followed and Controlled Remotely

from the bed of a pickup truck. The "pilot" talks to the driver to speed up or slow down.
A spotter watches for low flying planes. If he says Dive Dive Dive, the pilot immediately puts the glider into a dive.

This Glider Made it to the Turnaround

6+ miles north of town but couldnt find a thermal to make it back.
Bean fields made for nice, soft landing spots close to the road.
