That's great way to wakeup, coffee and a biatch'n vid.
Ahhhh, the Red Bull crew always scores. Do they have to drink the stuff too? _________________ H-4 (1976) UP Saturn 147 & UP Axis 13

That's one GREAT video! I hope Mr Cage gets a chance to see it.
Note: Aaron get VERY close to that other pilot at 3:30 in the video. Notice his shadow overlapping the other pilot's wing? It was certainly all planed out. _________________ WW 141 Fusion SP

Pilots on this board have mentioned that they show their non-pilot friends videos and pictures of hang gliding and the response is "uh, yeah, that's nice." Generally that's what I get, too.
Well, I've sent the link to this video to several people and the response from each has been similar. They loved it. Granted it is well done and kudos to Aaron for that, but what sets it apart from other HG media pieces is the intro segment with Nicholas Cage enthusiastically talking about the coolness factor of hang gliding.
Apparently that is what we need: a famous spokesperson.
I hope Mr. Cage calls Mr. Sweptson. _________________ "If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space." - Anonymous
