Glider Flight as presented by: Denver Post

In early September, Matthew Lloyd photographed the Yorkshire Gliding Club in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, England. The Club, founded in 1934, operates a fleet of fiberglass gliders and pilots can take advantage of the favorable soaring conditions of North Yorkshire. Towed into the sky to a height of 2000ft by an aircraft called a tug, the gliders are then released and can ride the thermals for a considerable amount of time, the club record being 13 continuous hours.
