Two gliders were forced into landings on Angus farmland on Tuesday.
Both aircraft had to go down just north of Kirkton of Monikie at about 11.20am due to a lack of “hot air” to keep them in the skies.
The two pilots are said to be experienced instructors from the Scottish Gliding Centre in Kinross, which is where they departed from. No passengers are said to have been on board either aircraft.
Neither of the pilots were injured and both gliders are believed to be undamaged – however both police and the Scottish Ambulance Service were called to the scene as a precaution.
A police spokesman said: “Two gliders have landed in a field due to lack of thermals, or hot air currents. They were flying from Kinross and ran out of hot air.
“They made the decision to make a landing and landed in a field. There was two of them. They uplifted their own aircraft.
“We did go. We just traced them and spoke to the pilots.
“We got the call at 11.22am. There was no damage to any of the aircraft, they were both towed away on trailers.”
The gliders are said to have been uplifted by 2.30pm.
