Glamorous Elena, a beautiful Van’s RV-7 belonging to a friend of mine, resting in the afternoon in Valdera airfield. The plane shape from this angle, the propeller position, diagonal to the image, and the strong colors are the reason for this picture.

The WAG 2009 (World Air Games) finished on June 13, 2009, but the next day an airshow took place at Turin Aeritalia airport. Many interesting planes (but also many other flying machines) were present. Among them an erobatic team using ultralight planes (Alpi Pioneer). I’ve shoot a lot of images, but I prefer this one for it’s colors and for the shapes of the smoking trails. The diagonal main line and off-centered subjects adds even more dynamism to the picture.
