Default Looking for video of glider spinning in wind tunnel

A couple of years ago there was a video of a V-tailed glider spinning in a
vertical wind tunnel. I believe this was of French origin.

The model had about a six ft wingspan; the tester simply tossed into the
wind tunnel in the spinning position and this could be maintained
indefinitely.

I cannot find a link and am looking for this video. The copy I saved is
now corrupt. Any hep is appreciated.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7QkTBKtyw8 -- not a v-Tail, not a glider, but it's a spin, it's French, it's a wind tunnel, and it spins indefinitely.

that's very cool! Glad they didn't decide to use drag chutes to stop spins though :-)

I think it might be this one:

It's not a glider, it's an ATL (Avion Très Léger), a light French two-seater single engine aircraft with V-tail. Probably filmed at Lille (France) where there is a vertical wind tunnel.

This video used to be op the ONERA (French aerodynamics laboratory) website, but I had to look it up on the internet archive.

Oops! Wrong link! Try this one: http://web.archive.org/web/200008310...q/aleg3_hq.mov

The other one is a German flutter test.
