Student pilot lands glider on a roof

Not a factory roof. Not a big box store.

The roof of a corner store.

There's something to be said for high aspect ratio wings and low wing loading. ... crash.html

If you watch the video, apparently the military is in charge of the accident investigation because the kid flying it was a cadet, and it was therefore a military flight.
