Without a doubt, the Duo is a beautiful monster bird on the ground, but once she gets airborne, she looks even bigger and more elegant. Here in the air, she is showing off her 20m-span wings and coming close to you! Huge thanks to the team for my first experience of air-to-air with Duo Discus! Launched from Menuma Glider Port and controlled by Toshiyuki Kurihara on the front seat, Yuzo Ezawa on the back seat, photo taken from A-1 Husky JA4083 controlled by Koji Asada. [Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-120mm F4]
