For the only one flyable ASK18 in Japan, the team gave me a wonderful chance of air-to-air photo session on the weekend. Launched from Menuma Glider Port in Saitama with a tug and photo ship A-1 Husky (JA4083). Huge thanks to Masahito Kuniga for his control on this blue bird, Mr.Koji Asada for his photo-ship control, Mr.Toshio Inoue and Yumiko Chida for their great support for the session. [Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-120mm F4]

Well done! Even in Germany a rare bird! But a heavy one if you want to handle it on ground! Damn!
