Good one. I'd read about the development of this procedure before, but hadn't seen a movie of it in action.
It makes me think that is we did this today, a glider club could launch sailplanes twice as fast as they do with the tow plane landing after each tow - they could just circle around, constantly pulling gliders into the air - too cool. My 182 used to have a glider tow hook, might have to find another one . . .
