Very nice shot and more guts than I have to fly on one of those hand gliders.

Thanks Phil, Craig, and Gimli. This was the first and only time I had ever been in the air in anything and I wasn't scared a bit. I was more worried about hanging on to my camera than anything else. It's probably the most fun I've ever had. In fact, even though I've never been in a regular plane, I just don't see how it could give you the feeling of freedom that an ultralight does. I'm including another shot which isn't very good photo-wise, as it shows part of my leg and one of the rear wheels of the trike, but I think it acts as a good scale of height. <img src=http://img6.photobucket.com/albums/v16/Jack_Nickelless/ball_field.jpg>

Both photos are great, but I agree with Phil, I will stay on the ground.
