Glider Sky

 

The other day we were sat on the patio when a plane towing a glider went past, I watched it fly away and missed taking a closer shot. I though it may well turn around and it did though higher this time

About here the glider was going to let go of the line towing it


 Then it was off flying away silently on it's own


 It disappeared into the clouds


 The tow plane too over in that direction

 Happy Skywatch

  1. Wow. I've never seen anything like that. Probably too dangerous here, so close to the busy Houston skies.

  5. Gorgeous skies. I wonder if it's a bumpy ride in that glider? It must be an amazing experience!

    1. I know flying in a tiger moth by-plane is bumpy so I would think that is worse

  8. It seems when I was a kid we would see a lot more gliders in the sky. Not so much now. Of course I live in the city underneath a glide path for our airport so that is not a place where gliders would be hanging out.
