A really good article on Threat and Error Management (TEM) by Arthur Gatland (New Zealand)

If you want an introduction to mountain flying down in the Alps, the RAFGSA do it well, here

My less polished attempt is below

I rather like the video below from a two seater going past the gun emplacements at Mont Chaberton (built by the Italians to keep the French out). It's a fun flight, but you really need two sets of hands to take video as you go past - so this one is from the RAFGSA site, not me.

The following talk by G Dale is very interesting. It talks of his experience baling out of his glider after a mid air collision in the Club Class Nationals. As it happens, I was a couple of km away, heading into the same (crowded) thermal at the time - I saw a glider spinning down in the middle of the gaggle, and shortly afterwards, a parachute opening. He told the story in the bar that night. It's worth any glider pilot watching and reflecting on.
