Great State Follow-Up : Redneck Rocketeers Amazing Flugtag Highlight

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Lake Carolyn, Texas -- The only Oklahoma crew invited to the Dallas, TX Flugtag event on September 21 built a home-made glider in a Perry garage.

They were a 'Great State' feature story earlier in the month.

It flew, perhaps, too well.

Their glider caught a sharp gust of head wind and went straight up with pilot Garret Ebersole hanging on for dear life.

The results were spectacular and a little scary too. Fortunately, Garrett and his team escaped without serious injury.
