Instructor flying hang glider-- What a view!

Hang Gliding in Queenstown, New Zealand

I'm flying tandem with my instructor.  Whoever's hands are on the control bar is piloting. The person not currently piloting holds onto the other person with one hand, to stabilize the weight of the two humans into being one singular weight, and tucks the other hand into his own suit.  Above, my instructor is piloting, and I'm enjoying the spectacular Queenstown view.  Below, I'm piloting.  A remote-controlled camera is mounted on the wingtip.
