A selection of Glide Ring photos from ForeFlight, with a conservative assumption of a 9.0 to 1.0 Glide Ratio at 60 KIAS Best Glide, in various AGL altitude and terrain scenarios. ForeFlight uses winds aloft and the terrain below the aircraft along with the assumed Glide Ratio and Best Glide Speed to estimate a light green colored "glide possible" ring around the current aircraft position.
Note that images 20-22 had an unusually strong headwind approaching 50 knots.
