Sucks big time!! From the RC field today a bunch of guys saw the wreck and the parachute from the cirrus floating down. I got to the field about 5 minutes after it happened and saw the smoke.

One guy at the field gives full scale glider rides and had been towed up over 70 times by the pilot who was flying the tow plane!!

Sad day indeed!!

Well, on the video they say they was flying over a no controlled airport. So its look like one of the pilot was not paying atention to his radio or maybe the tow airplane does not transmit his intentions.

But I am pretty sure a pilot towing a glider will be talking over the radio that he is towing a Glider........

Also, its look like the Tow Plane has just take off and the Cirrus was entering to that area. As many of you know, the entering plane has to radio with around 5 to 4 miles ahead eaven if is a no controlled airport.
