It looks like a cold and crisp day for a flight Cherie… but i am sure that once it is off the ground the silent soaring flight would be wonderful….peter:)
I was wondering what the would see on that day… It was so foggy
Been reading the chopper crash on BBC today ~
Not a good day to fly, C.
This was picture was from a couple of days ago and the fog was the same.
I agree flying in those conditions is not sensible, indeed it is quite foolish.
I’d fly with you any time, Cherie.
Remember there would have to be no political conversations though
I would be the soul of discretion and consideration.
What a fun thing to do. Were you going some place or just went up to look at the scenery and views? Either way, it is always a great experience to be in the air. Have a great weekend. Mickie
We just fancied a couple of hours out of the house and thought it would be a nice place to drive. It was
Happy weekend to you too
Reminds me of when we bought my husband a glider flight for his 60th birthday. (Long time ago!) He loved it but I was on the ground waiting for him to be there too!! Lovely pic.
It sound like you had some fun time with that glider
I wanted to photograph it from higher up the hill but it was difficult to stop. I was glad a was able to this photo which isn’t quite what had in my minds eye.
… and did u fly ?
Nooo… The sling shot effect/sensation as they are launched is not for me!
Unusual picture. I thought those planes only flew on ‘hot air’ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal)
Love the trees in the background!
I suppose that even when it is cold there are still pockets of air that are warmer than others.
I like those trees too
