Recently, one of my photos was published in a soaring magazine. I should be excited, but I’m not. In short, they misrepresented my photo. They implied the pilot was in a contest and landed out; meaning, he missed the strip and the prize altogether.
Here’s the real story: It was a leisurely hot afternoon with no contest rules in sight. Scott was snuggled in his v-tail glider, and I was aloft, hanging out of a Cessna 172 window, taking photographs. After a spectacular shoot, Scott, on final, lined up on 4,000 ft., hard surfaced runway, while I happily clicked away. I know you can’t see the runway, but I can assure you that it’s there.
I’ve submitted almost 75 pictures to the soaring magazine and that’s the one they chose. So I’ve decide to share some fun flying photos with you. See below, but only if your fascinated with soaring.
