Skywatch Friday: Training Cadets

I live fairly close to the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. Very often one can hear the buzz of the small aircraft for training the Academy cadets. This shot shows a glider being hauled up to altitude. With the clear sky, it looks like a perfect time to glide. Check out this cool video of a glider flight.

To see other shots of the sky, check out at SkyWatch Friday.

Lovely complementary colors (almost). Very crisp. They train with gliders? Who would though. Have a great weekend and happy SWF!
