Please do not break the will of 10 photos and videos.
There is in the northeast of the small town of Belarus Syanno is right between Vitebsk and Orsha. Special architectural landmarks has unfortunately remained. But here is one that attracts many lovers of the sky - an abandoned airfield. In Soviet times, was used for the needs of small aircraft, airliners were even in the next town. Then, with the collapse of the Union of all come to desolation, but the runway is still more or less preserved. 15-20 years ago with commercials even hold some competitions, flying a large number of gliders. That's about it right now, and speech.
It happened just yesterday. Seeing in the sky big multicolored humming birds rushed to the airport, always wanted to fly. While preparing a bird for flight, asked the owner about the glider is an interesting hobby. Photos and videos made soap box, so that the appropriate quality).

Thing for me was terrible - it's taking off and landing. Precision landing, take-off has not yet managed to scare. Generally, the entire flight took place in a dream, the more that came out absolutely spontaneous. I came, I asked, and flew. Several regretted his attire (shorts and jersey), yet there is much cooler) Here, in general, the flight itself:

Places we are beautiful, with a hand to the city do not drive up - you will pass by the lake.

Generally top all so good and beautiful. Flat fields, toy houses:
