There were some nice planes on Mainz-Finthen Flugplatz last weekend.
Weather was rather lousy, so no good pics. But it was fun anyways! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

A german dude fast on the Spitfire's tail! http://www.pbase.com/dolfo/image/66371942.jpg

Same Spitty, got rid of the bad guy!

Tug-of-war?

Nah, just launching a glider...

And it flew nice!

Now the really interesting part is that a friend's grandfather did the very first glider flight here in Brazil, in 1937 iirc, on that same (or very simmilar) type of glider, towed by an automobile!

Thanks for looking!
