Here is a front seat view of a glider launching. I don’t often take a camera up but on this day Rob Taplow did the flying from the seat behind me. All I did on the launch was to press Record. And to find a Rolling Stones song to go with the video.

Wartime Saltby

These are some pictures of Saltby during the war. US paratroopers went from here to Normandy on the eve of D day. There are troop carrying gliders there too.
