Bernd, I expected all - especially more scenic Yosemite pictures - but an engine failure. Great pictures nevertheless!

Btw, is it El Capitan in #8, the rock wall your plane's nose points to?

Yes, Harald, it is. Have you been hiking there before?

Wow...Bernd...great pictures..! Love the fly-over (or, should I say, fly-thru) shots in the narrow valleys...!

Yeah..."Ok, we need to gain altitude, full power...", that would explain it...🙂...must have forgotten about those red-markings on the gauges....(Glad you made it safely back to the earth)...!

[Regarding El Capitan, I hear of it, unfortunately, when a climbing accident happens there...not that infrequent, though, it seems...(quite a daunting thing)...good to see it in your shots, here..]

Unfortunately not, but I never forget seeing the documentary "Am Limit" about the Huber brothers trying a speed climbing record at El Capitan. That video evening was the evening before crossing the Timmelsjoch by bike, but that's another story.
