I took Little Hawk to UCSD today and had a great time letting people hold it, run with it, and hang from it.

Unfortunately, I only thought to get a few photos. These first two are photos of a Korean War veteran who went through Jump School at Fort Benning. We had a great time talking about Jump School and swapping stories from all the aircraft we'd jumped out of.

This last photo is a student who's very interested in taking up hang gliding, and I hope we'll see him at our next Second Sunday on the 12th.

Here are some pictures from Sunday's visit to UCSD.

These first two are my own demonstration runs:

Of course, there were students, but I was usually so busy helping them that I didn't have time to capture very many pictures. Here's a couple snapshots from one video that I did get:

So far, Little Hawk (the 65 square foot demonstration glider) is working out great. You can read more about it on the topic titled "'Little Hawk' - Demonstration Glider" at http://ushawks.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=83.

At this time we've got about 6 UCSD students who are interested in learning more about hang gliding. Many of them will be coming out to our events this weekend (after finals!!) so they can get a better introduction to the sport. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to "Little Hawk" and to everyone who has helped with this project!!
