Wonderful shot. What is really cool is that the aircraft is still climbing in this shot!! What a joyful way to fly.

I did'nt know that the LS-4 was approved for loops :P, I hope the airspeed is 70 km/h and not 270km/h :P lol nice shot

Great Picture. I kind of doubt that it is still climbing. Remember the delay in the VSI.

Definitely captures the thrill of the moment! The whiskey compass, the yaw string, and the view say it all. Four variometers, including a digital one installed - and they're all behind the aircraft just a bit. :) Looks like a great time!

Check the vario.This pilot is doing a loop in a thermal! Sure , soaring is for true pilots!

Very nice shot.the airspeed indicator it's for sure at 70 just after the top of the loop.I would say it ran out of speed and stalled just at the top of the loop(the stall speed is bigger on inverted flight for non symmetric airfoils)

Very nice, this shot shows first hand the "lag" in the VSI
