As I was heading up I-91 Sunday, saw a hang glider doing circles around the communication towers on top. Trust it wasn't you!

A hang glider, or a paraglider? Triangular, or kind of banana-shaped? The latter is far more common at that site, due to the logistics of getting the equipment up to launch, though HGs do fly there occasionally. But in any case, it wasn't me.

I've never actually flown Mt. Tom. I once helped another pilot schlep his gear up there, and another time I did set up my glider, but things didn't go so well and I ended up carrying it all back down.

It was probably a paraglider. From my angle it sure looked close to the radio towers.
