    1st Flight

    My sons School CCF RAF Cadets on their 1st flight in a glider. This young mans 1st flight, weather closing in, wind, rain - would he be able to to slip the surly bonds of earth........yes he did. I know it is not the most technical of photos but I just hope you can see the apprehension.

    I can just imagine a "companion" shot in a few years - but this time with a helmet, and in a jet fighter

    I'm not sure that look is apprehension, I think he is calculating his distance from the horizon and how fast can he get there.

    He looks like he's focused and visually what he's about to do.
    This is a wonderful keepsake for you and for him
