GOLDEN EAGLE SEG GLIDER: Joseph A. Burgos Jr. registered at Sky Sailors Soaring Club in Long Island, New York and got to fly on the Golden Eagle SEG Glider. It was a two seat - front and rear - dual control glider. While seated in the front cockpit and the co-pilot in the rear, the glider was towed to the air by another plane and released in the sky. Looking at the instrument panel that read 4,000 feet, he managed to take the controls and maneuver the glider left and right, up and down, while constantly gaining lift to keep the glider from descending down from the sky. After soaring in the sky without an engine, he observed the landing site in the far distance and descended down for a landing like the Space Shuttle and landed on the field near Gabraski Airport.
