<-- Gero met office Lining up to land:

Taking off and landing are my most hated parts of flying. On this occasion, both were painless. After a short run-up, the plane lifted off the ground quickly and effortlessly. My initial panic (there was a lot of it) melted away as I got my camera out and admired the view, now green from the recent rains. Landing also seemed very fast, and didn't end with a bone-jarring thump as it sometimes does on airliners.
Then we took the plane back to the hangar:

All in all, a pretty good experience!
