Remark Photographer
JA02YB / YB (cn 297CS) Of Hanyu Soaring Club, flying over Hanyu Airfield, Saitama. This was my 4th challenge of air-to-air photo session, which was the best one I've ever had. Taken from a towing plane Scheibe SF-25C Falke (JA25CH). Huge thanks to Mr. Okumura, the pilot on this Discus, and Mr. Okunuki on the camera-ship for the great controlling. [Nikon D70, Nikkor 80-200mm F2.8]

A visitor from Japan posted Thu June 3, 2010:
The glider is beautifully lit, and I'd give it a five if the backround matched the color of the sailplane. I would love to get a Glider Pilot Certificate, and if I could, I would love to do it in that glider.
