Looks like resturant well worth visiting Klaus, excellent images looks like the glider must be very close to the platform.

Nice set, Klaus. At 135mm that guy must have come pretty close.

Thank you guys.
It came close to 15 ... 20 meters (approx. the same in yards).

It's weird, sitting there nipping a coffee and suddendy there are wings from one end to the other of the terrace...

Kind regards
Klaus

Really nice Klaus. Well done. I nearly missed these but it's particularly good to see the 135 DC in action for these. If, indeed, that's what it was.
