Notes:

[Full HD/1920px] Some days are just truly special, and that one really was the case! My friend and pilot José Miguel Silva invited me for an Air-2-Air photo session featuring this sleek vintage motor glider, a SF.25C Falke with a 60hp Limbach engine, mono-wheel version and 15-meter long wingspan, which is now based in Braga (LPBR). Falke is the German word for “Falcon”. I was onboard CS-XCC, a ICP Savannah with its right door removed in order to get my shots with the best possible quality. Routing was Braga > Ponte de Lima > Viana do Castelo > Esposende > Braga and during this 2-hour flight I had the privilege to get some absolutely incredible photographs from the so-called “Bird’s-eye view”, or shall I say “Falke’s view”? This picture was taken abeam the river mouth of Lima river, south of Viana do Castelo city, with the Atlantic Ocean making an absolutely perfect backdrop. Also special thanks to Miguel Viana, the pilot of D-KAET who contributed a lot for the success of this photo shooting. Stay safe, guys!
