CALLOUT 12/22: Glider "land out"
At lunchtime on Saturday North Wales Police asked us to assist at an incident on Moel Famau. Initially reported as a crashed paraglider, it turned out to be a full size glider, with two occupants, who had been forced to land on the side of the hill. It was soon established that neither occupant was injured.
Gliders occasionally have to “land out” away from their home base. But this was a particularly spectacular spot to pick and understandably members of the public feared the worst!
Our team members provided safety cover when members of the local Denbigh gliding club arrived to move the glider.
