I thought the LS4 wasn't permitted to do loops... Anyway great picture!

A visitor from Romania posted Sun May 30, 2010:
Very nice, this shot shows first hand the "lag" in the VSI

A visitor from Romania posted Thu October 22, 2009:
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)

A visitor from Norway posted Wed April 2, 2008:
Check the vario.This pilot is doing a loop in a thermal! Sure , soaring is for true pilots!

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!

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 2, 2007:
Great Picture. I kind of doubt that it is still climbing. Remember the delay in the VSI.

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 3, 2007:
Hope you did not go any faster. Nice shot.

A visitor from Switzerland posted Tue July 17, 2007:
Engines are for children. real men don't need them to fly :)

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 17, 2007:
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

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 17, 2007:
Wonderful shot. What is really cool is that the aircraft is still climbing in this shot!! What a joyful way to fly.

A visitor from Singapore posted Tue July 17, 2007:
Nice and sharp, Looks like she's in an inverted spin.

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue July 17, 2007:
