Moving pictures from a glider

Filming is a compulsion, filming our kids, our holidays and lately a few moments from some glider flights. The camera was tiny, I didn’t want a big heavy camera hitting me on the head in the bumpy air, so the quality is not so good. Despite the low resolution these clips convey a bit of the feeling of soaring a mile high on a super day.

The strange noises come from the audio variometer, an instrument that makes a high pitched noise when the glider is going up and a low beat when it sinks. On this particular day it was just as easy to feel thermals in the seat of my pants, bump, wallop and up I went.
