An aircraft that tows gliders.
- An upset occurs when the towed glider kites upward lifting the tail of the towplane until the weak link breaks.
- Once we hit 300 feet or so, Drew gave me the controls and I followed the towplane back to Hollister.
- If the towplane can rock you off they will, however, if they must they will just give you the rope.
