sailplane forced landing

The smart alecks are out in force with the photograph circulating widely on social media of a sailplane (hehe) that made its off-airport landing in the drink. The Schempp-Hirth Duo Discus X glider landed in the Raystown Lake in Huntington County, Pennsylvania, for unknown reasons. We’re glad the pilot and other occupant were uninjured (except for the pride part, which we’re not helping here), and the sailplane (again, haha) seems to be in excellent shape. But the question remains: Can the pilot log seaplane time? Check out the story on WTAJ here.
