About 30 years ago I winch-launched in a real K8 glider on just such Summer evening from Ringmer, Sussex, England. The sea, a few miles distant was bathed in golden light. At the top of the launch I heard the amazing sound of 6 Rolls-Royce Merlins, only to see the Battle of Britain memorial-flight passing 1/4 mile way co-alt right to left. They must have seen me come up the wire because they all banked as a vic to give me a good - and close - view of their upper-surfaces. An amazing sight and sound which still gives me goose-bumps in the remembrance 30 years on. The sound of the merlins was simply beautiful. Many thanks for your video and bringing that wonderful, and utterly unrepeatable, moment back to me!
