I like the nose down image with the pattern of the city. One comment - This is a DG-101 (not DG-100) as it doesn't have the two piece canopy.

A visitor from Thailand posted Tue November 9, 2010:
Excellent shot!

A visitor from Canada posted Thu July 15, 2010:
Push stick in, the houses get bigger.... Pull stick back, the houses get smaller.. Neat!

A visitor from United States posted Mon June 21, 2010:
Wow you have some amazing glider photoes. The way I can tell there yours is because of that red string on the canopy. Your photoes deserve to be on front page. Amazing and good work JB.

Amazing...crisp and clear under these conditions. Did someone sneak up on you from your 8 o'clock, JB? Your FLARM is lit up. Cheers

A visitor from France posted Mon May 31, 2010:
Probably one of the greatest pic I've ever seen ! Good Job !!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon May 31, 2010:
FANTASTIC PHOTO!!!!! The essence of flight!!!! More more more more moreeeeee!!!! Well done JB :-)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon May 31, 2010:
Very nice photo, are you coming "back" from a looping?

To people talking about -4000fpm:
In german Gliderairplanes, the Instruments are all using METRIC data! So the Airspeed indicator shows 180 Kph and the vario shows 4 meters per second descending!

A visitor from - posted Mon May 31, 2010:
A brave picture to take, well done !

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon May 31, 2010:
Very nice!

A visitor from France posted Sun May 30, 2010:
Just missing the sound of the wind whistling around the frame....... and you're there !

A visitor from Finland posted Sun May 30, 2010:
Excellent shot, would imagine that this takes some planning and extra attempts to get right, as I've found out that taking reasonable pictures with most cameras using your left hand while flying with your right is ridiculously difficult.. doing that the other way around while maneuvering takes some learning too.

To the comments about the vertical speed: the variometer is metric, indicating some 4,4 m/s sink, and is most likely total energy compensated, meaning that the indicated value is not anything near the true vertical speed here.

A visitor from Italy posted Sun May 30, 2010:
Breathtaking...that's all ! :) 5*

A visitor from Germany posted Sun May 30, 2010:
As, i'am sure about this, also yur instructor told you a couple of years ago: "Push" -> big houses, "Pull" -> small houses.
Great shot. The best way to end an 300km flight :)

A visitor from - posted Sun May 30, 2010:
"Terrain! Pull up, pull up!!!". Fortunately gliders still don't have GPWS and you are high enough :)). This shot is stunning.

A visitor from Spain posted Sun May 30, 2010:
Wow. -4400 fpm of vertical speed and entering the orange sector of the speed indicator. Woop woop pull up !

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun May 30, 2010:
I thought you had to put your right hand on the steering stick? lol

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun May 30, 2010:
5* Don't we just love flying in a glider?!?! :-)
Nice plane + scenery! can't wait to go flying myself again!
