K8 Glider Cockpit View | SIDESLIP LANDING at Weston | GoPro View | Solo GliderJoin me in the cockpit of this K8 solo glider as I put an end to my longest glider flight yet! Enjoy a circuit around the airfield for a planned hangar landing, and watch as I find myself too high with full airbrakes extended, making a sideslip/forward slip necessary to lose height and land on the grass runway. Always remember to take into account the headwind component (wind was calm that day) as well as the airbrake effectiveness when turning final.
