Sig Demoiselle flys!

In an earlier Sig Demoiselle thread I promised flight shots when possible and today was the day.
It flys outstanding in calm air but I was up against a 3 mph breeze (according to the NWS ). Downwinds were quick and the upwind was a thing of beauty as it held it's own and occasionaly moved forward over the field.
My partner took many shots as I worked my way around the field early this morning. These are very realistic photos and you can nearly feel the pilots joy as it lifts up and flys!
Thanks to SIG for bringing early avaition back in a great form.

Looks great! I always liked the little Demoiselle. Does yours have a "flying" tail, or rudder and elevator?

Clear skies.

Thanks all. The Demoiselle has the full flying tail group, what a joy to watch in action!
Yes, that would be early morning here in Kansas. Got the the field around 6:45 to beat out the wind that was to blow us out by 8:30 or so.
Here is a shot of what we flew this morning. Two of us are early risers. We check our e-mail and head for the field on weekends! Ross owns half the fleet on the ground and is my test pilot and e-mentor. ( myself in the photo )
