That's advertisement for the Polaris Gliders Manufacturer that they couldn't buy until now. "Are you seeking fun in low budget Flight? Are you seeking to fly to asylum... Well Polaris Gliders has got you covered"....

Given their feat (look at the makeshift glider's wheels !!), they deserve to get asylum. I pull my hat off to these two guys !!

Sad that some folks can’t seem to use good judgment to keep their political views off of this platform.

Luckily, there were no reported incidents or injuries, and operations were able to continue as normal..
LUCKILY...
.Why, luckily? Sensationlism.idiots. The harrowing part was not knowing if they were detected and shot down by the wonderful socialistic government that is described as Utopia by woke media, Cuba..

As I read your comment, I thought you were going to say United States, not Cuba.

Who is describing Cuba as Utopia? Are you making things up for your little culture war?

I’m curious how they managed to obtain the aircraft in a communist country where everyone is poor?

But, but, but...if you listen to the ignorant Left...Cuba is where it is at! I mean, socialism is the key to a happy a FAIR life. What were these three thinking?

I'm guessing that numbers still don't lie!! Increased population of Florida versus those fleeing California!!! Says it all and drop the mic!!!

I'm surprised Ronnie DeSantis's keystone kops didn't shoot it down.

It's interesting how some conservative Americans would give these guys asylum because of their perilous journey but not Cubans seeking asylum through the Mexican border after a more perilous journey.

I don't think that these two intelligent men will wind up on the welfare rolls!

There are material differences. Equating the two ignores those. What is your purpose?
