Fire hazard

In Namibia it is dust dry again. Nice for gliding, that gives strong, high-reaching thermals. Just not for the country. The vegetation is extremely flammable. And there are always bushfires.

With his own platform

Elmar Fischer has a good laugh. He can spend the entire Namibia season in Bitterwasser with his Arcus M. His co-pilots have to share the second seat behind him. First in line was ex-starfighter pilot G√ľnter Weiss, who now had to say goodbye.

If you don't really believe in it

In Bitterwasser the pan really has to sizzle in the heat, then long distance flights are the order of the day. On Saturday it was rather cool, "only" 35 degrees were announced and the clouds should be far to the east. The attitude of many pilots: We take it easy, start later, when the blue thermal also reaches high.
