Look Up!

Look up!

I noticed this Super Dimona motor glider while having coffee on the veranda a couple of days ago. I ran for the camera and managed to get a few quick shots. The aircraft registration on this plane is a good one, as SE-UPH also means Look up! This plane is normally used to get a glider airborne. The plane belongs to Stockholms Segelflygklubb and I emailed them a link to my flickr photo, and figured they would like it. They said they did.

Skywatch Friday.

You're pretty darn quick and got a great shot!

Not to worry about taking my camera...it's with me most of the time - even playing golf!

What a great shot! I'm guessing you used a good telephoto lens, otherwise they were flying fairly low.

You were lucky to get this great shot of the plane with a lovely blue sky as a background. They usually fly out of my range before I get the camera. Nice job.

I have never seen one of these. It looks rather like a glider itself. Good shot.

That sure was a lucky shot especially if you had to run for your camera.
