Me flying a powered paraglider

My son Brian took this picture of me on my third flight. Full moon that evening. I flew from Athens field in Lincoln. Brian helped me set up. The wind shifted and I blew the first launch attempt. Second attempt went very well. My hands were worm because I wore new gloves and I felt very comfortable. The air was pretty smooth and I had a great ride. A little late getting up in the air so, unfortunately, I set down after a fairly short ride with a good landing.
