Traces of flight on the fog

On the afternoon of November 15, 1818, a jet holdings flies over southern Germany. Between Ulm and Memmingen the plane leaves its contrails at high altitude. They are cast as shadows in the high fog / fog of the Danube valley and the Alpine foothills.

Around the world in a glider

A real option close to Meppen, Emsland, Germany.

On 08.07.2018, one day after the successful completion of the Euroglide, I flew from Venlo into the Emsland. North of Meppen, at the old Hüntel power plant,  I was able to circumnavigate the world. Along the equator it was the fastest. With the South Pole, however, no pilot has yet taken up the challenge!
