This topic is a place to collect photos, videos, and other media subject to the Wikimedia commons license.

Wikimedia Commons provides a place for people to post images and videos subject to a generally liberal licensing system. There are quite a few hang gliding images there, and this topic is a place to catalog some of the best that might be useful for our training manual.

So if you have some time to spend, please browse through the Wikimedia commons for hang gliding media that you like. Post it here with a link and the appropriate credit and licensing. You don't need to post the full sized image since the link will get people to any size they need. Media can be found here:

       General: https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/
       Hang Gliders: https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/Ca ... ng_gliders

Thanks to everyone who contributes!!    :salute:
