Springtime has been gifted with many non working days. One of them, ascending/ascendance (?) day, has been nicknamed "kristiflygare" here which I'd translate to something like "christ the aviator day". Well I kind of figured that I could contribute to tradition by sneaking away to do some flying (or at least use this as an excuse). The number of "traditionalists" on Gärdet was a bit of a disappointment: two families with children that struggled with their SLKs for a while - however I got the chance to talk kites to a much interested bystander for almost 2h who also helped me to take these photos.
Decided to use these (politically themed) sculptures for some Smithi Pro precision practice - to aim for landing on the thumb. Well it was easier to do this with the B-series mid vent than the Smithi Pro, but on the other hand it is only the second (part of a) session with the Smithi Pro.
