When I shared my paragliding experience at the recent Onomichi Free
English Conversation Dojo, I recalled my experience flying over the Seto Inland Sea in a flying boat from Kashima Island.
It was one of my coverage broadcasts by a local cable TV station,
and I still vividly remember the sensation of the flight (tandem flight with an operator).
I think it is similar to the sensation of takeoff, landing, and
staying in the air when the main character of NHK's morning drama series trains to become a female pilot, which have been aired on weekdays.
The attached photos show the taking-off from the sea, the flight
and glide about 500 meters high above the sea, and the landing on the sea.
The video will be introduced on the Internet in the
near future as one of the reprints in the "Once upon a time in Onomichi
& Neighboring" series.
