Stefan Langer was choosen as athlete of the year 2015 in Donauwörth. He made excellent flights with his own Std. Libelle “SL” and the sponsored Nimbus 4 “EP”. One of his greatest flight was at the 18th of April with the open class glider “EP”, when he flew 1159 km (1013 km FAI) in only 10:34 h. This was worldwide the longest flight at this day and he landed about 20 minutes after sunset, after he used a power plant to gain some more height to extend the flight. The pictures were taken only a view minutes before sunset, incredible but very cold.
