January 1, 2006 Location of the incident: , Type of Incident:
I was at about 100 feet flying along the beach when I felt something pushing under my feet. Looked down, I gasped: it was a wing right beneath me, pushing up on me. At one point my frame was resting on the wing. At first I felt like my worst nightmare had come true and then in the next split second I realized that by powering up I could climb up and off his wing.
As I went to full power, he passed under me and I followed him to the LZ. When I relayed what happened, he shrugged his shoulders and said he never knew I was there. I don’t know how he missed me. He must have been flying faster than me because I did not pass him.
