flykingmt-header2009Some images and video from the Hang Glider Nationals held at King Mountain. The weather on the first day was light but good. Several pilots got up and left the hill early, while some hung around until late afternoon to launch.

The day before the competition started saw Dennis Pagen giving a mini seminar about the weather. It was good information, and probably as quiet as the park was going to get as long as there were pilots around.

The new showers added to the park by the city of Moore were a welcome addition according to everyone who used them.

If you didn’t make it out to the Nationals meet, you should make it a point to come fly King Mountain. It is worth the trip.
