Cee’s challenge this week is “Anything that flies…”, and with a large archive of photos taken at the Mid-Atlantic Soaring Championships this was a bit dificlut, mainly in making the choices of what to put here, I have hundreds of images.
The flightline, a couple dozen ‘birds’ (we call them ships) are awaiting tows. All of them will be launched within an hour.
One of the ‘ships’ behind the tow-plane. It will be towed to an altitude of about 2500′ then stay aloft for an hour or so using nothing but the up-drafts under the clouds., and fly a course of over 100 miles.
“SM” (Sugar Mike) landing back at the ‘gliderport’ after completing the asigned task. Don’t fret, those trees are about half a mile away, and the plane is about 10′ above the runway.
