Aircraft Hovering at 14,000 Feet, Footage is Remarkable
Pilot Brent Davidson released awesome footage from inside his fixed-wing glider aircraft being lifted high by a Northern California headwind. The wind moved in so powerful, that Davidson was able to hover in place at over 14,000 feet.
While flying wave lift we ended up totally stopped over the ground. Not moving forwards, backward, up, or down. In strong conditions, mountain wave lift can take gliders to past 50,000 feet!
