Video – Mid-Air Collision with Glider Tow Line

The German pilot in his Rans S6 Ultralight plane was flying in formation with friends across France. A French towplane crossed his flight path a few moments after he released a glider. Its 60meter long glider tow line gets caught into the propeller of the UL plane and forced the pilot to pull his safety parachute. – In Germany it’s required for every UL plane to have an emergency parachute. – Nobody was injured.
