Launch Pictures......

Some of the best shots I've seen are right at launch. There's just something about throwing your plane off a cliff thats hard to explain to others.

Whether it's a maiden or the 100th time, heck most the time it's not even your plane and for the guy launching it...do you think he's thinking of the countless hours you spent building it?

Heck no! He just want's to CHUCK IT!

Here's a good one to start with.
