Small Wings – Glider Over Tochigi
Ok, so finally, let’s take a break from all the doom and gloom you guys are hearing and let’s go back to an old fashioned Tokyobling post! Like, they used to be before this earthquake business ruined the fun.
In January I was asked to volunteer on a photo shoot in Tochigi, there was to be a gorgeous model and some photography of machines involved. Nobody told me I would be flying until I stood on the landing field signing a paper that I wouldn’t hold them liable for any death due to high speed collision with ground (i.e. don’t get mad if we crash). Needless to say I was thrilled to get up in the wide blue yonder! I was busy shooting video most of the ride but I got a few shots of Tochigi prefecture under my winges, up at about 3000ft. And suddenly I remembered my old childhood dream of becoming a pilot. Well, one can dream. Still, it was a great way to spend an afternoon. If you are not broke and want to try something new, I recommend glider flying!
