UFO? No — IFOs!
This is not a UFO but two perfectly Identified Flying Objects: a tow plane and its glider in a strange perspective just after their take-off from Montricher Air Field. Photo taken with a Pentax K20D camera at 1/1000 sec, F 5.8, focal length 250 mm. The original file was just cropped; no other modification.
This was taken on my godson's first flight in an airplane. My wife asked him if he was ready to take off, and he responded with two thumbs up! Taken with an iPhone. Cropped, but no other editing.
