Hang Gliding a Morning Glory ( Jonny Durand ) Surfing the biggest wave Ever

Jon Durand Hang Gliding / Sky Surfing a rare meteorological cloud phenomenon called a Morning Glory. It is like surfing a tsunami or tidal wave in the sky. It’s great for doing loops and flying fast. The Glider is towed in the Sky by a small ultra lite aircraft. Also called aerotow hang gliding. RedBull and Nikon Camera sponsored. It was filmed by Mark Watson near Burketown Barramundi Australia.

Obviously fake! You used a trained ant to fly a miniature hang glider in front of a normal cloud.

Seen one of them over Brisbane in 1987 as a storm cell with strong wind and hail stretched from 1 side to the other like a tornado horizontal, amazing site to see..

What was the altitude and wind speed? the loops are incredible. What glider is this?
Love the sound of the wind.
I've heard Australia is one of the best places to glide.
Nicely done. Soft landing after a masterclass of hang-gliding.
Take care, be safe. See you in the sky.
