Shifting our attention back to safety this week, we have a video clip from YouTube user RemosG3. The near mid-air collision here ends with actual mid-air when the Rans S6 (with camera aboard) strikes the tow line attached to the glider the Rans barely missed. The line isn't clearly visible, so watch closely and if you listen closely, you can hear the line hit the Rans and the parachute deploy.
