Luca Bertossio: World Glider Champ

In the process of my daily web-surfing, I stumbled across this amazing video of world champion aerobatic glider pilot Luca Bertossio doing some amazing things in a glider. Get some popcorn and watch this.

Amazing, right? This just blows my mind. Aerobatics are cool to watch, but something about sailplane aerobatics is really amazing. With no engine except gravity, people like Bertossio and Bob Carlton can do things that make your head spin. It looks like he actually tumbles the sailplane in this one:

Wow. I want to learn to fly a sailplane anyway, but seeing cool stuff like this gets the gears turning. I think I need to add “Glider Aerobatics” to my ever-growing aviation bucket list.
