15 Meter Nationals - Aug 4 Report

2010 15-Meter National Soaring Championships – Uvalde, Texas

Report for 4 August

 

An excellent Texas soaring day ended in tragedy.  A midair collision about 15 miles south of home left one pilot safely on the ground with a badly damaged elevator.  The other glider was seen to go out of control; Chris O’Callaghan (OC) suffered fatal injuries in the ensuing crash.

We’re deeply involved in the aftermath just now.  Look for a fuller report tomorrow.
