One morning we took glider rides from Dillingham airfield on the north end of Oahu. The gliders are towed up into the air by another small plane, then they ride the air currents above the northern mountains. We were hoping to get some good pictures from the air, but because of the bubble of plexiglass enclosing the cockpit, there was always glare in the pictures. Despite that, we had a great view from up there, and our planes even circled around each other a few times so that we could see each other. It was a neat experience, and you can’t beat the view from up there.
