A Glider or sailplane is a heavier-than-air aircraft that is supported in flight by the dynamic reaction of the air against its lifting surfaces, and whose free flight does not depend on an engine. Most gliders do not have an engine, although motor-gliders have small engines for extending their flight when necessary and some are even powerful enough to take off. (From Wikipedia)

This is a good shot of this glider and it's silent flight. The yellow color stands well over the blue of the sky and the details are sharp.

the color combination of yellow and blue and strong contrast between them makes the shot so eye-catching and expressive.
Excellently captured and presented scene(the glider looks quite different from conventional gliders).
Have a nice day

This must be on final approach to land, a fine looking vintage home-made glider and it must be a wonderful experience floating on air in this no noise and great views. Love the beautiful contrast in colours, clear shot to get the profile in the frame. Fine capture Elue, Congrats
