Joe Waiting (8th Sep 2007)

Joe is a gliding instructor and is sitting in the back seat of a K21 training glider.  He and his student are waiting to get launched at the Scottish Gliding Union.  I printed this for a competition and happened to see it upside down.  It was only then I noticed the reflection of Joe’s head and hat in the wing!

Portmoak Airfield is like Balvaird Castle – strictly speaking it’s in Perthshire but it’s location to the south of the Ocils makes it feel like it’s in Fife to me.
