    Did you all hear about this? Apparently they were flying together out of Arlington WA. when they collided and crashed. One glider was folded up by the crash and that pilot died. The other had a damaged plane but brought it down and lived but had to hike out an report the crash at like 1am. He then flew the searchers to the other crash site where they recovered the pilot.

    Strange accidents...these guys were friends.:(
