Default At the top of the loop

During the first January flight we had taken this still photo from a Camera screwed on Franz's plane along the tip screws line.

It's a strange perspective (for a carburator engine )

I'd like to share it with you :

Thumbs up Luca!

If the mothership passes on this for the 2020 calendar, can I please use it for the Feb wallpaper calendar?

That might be the prettiest RV picture I've ever seen.
