UP Makalu wing and Sup’air X-Alps harness, no registration


At a height of less than 100 ft above a steeply sloping hill the wing of the paraglider suffered an asymmetric collapse over approximately 60% of its area. The wing had partially re-inflated when the pilot impacted a rock imbedded in the hillside. The wing was found to be serviceable and the collapse was probably caused by air turbulence.
