These are links to Big Blue Sky — The history of modern hang gliding – the first extreme sport!, 2008, documentary by Bill Liscomb on YouTube. These two are contiguous:

  • Manufacturing standards and testing: Big Blue Sky starting at 1 hour, 2 minutes, 47 seconds (Pete Brock narrating then I think Bob Tranpenau then, briefly, Bill Bennett)
  • Vehicle test rigs: Big Blue Sky starting at 1 hour, 3 minutes, 55 seconds (Bill Liscomb narrating then Tom Price then, I think, Bob Trampenau)
