The “Death Grip”

It’s been a while since my last post… In the coming weeks I’ll post some updates about the news from the last months… 🙂

If you ever wondered what the expression “Death Grip” means, here is the visual answer for this :-). When I took this image, this expression just came through my mind, so here it comes!

However, in aviation this means that the pilot is squeezing the yoke very hard while flying the airplane. This happens to a lots of pilots, especially when you fly a plane for the first time, or you don’t feel very comfortable.

Happy Halloween everyone!

  1. Heyyyyy,how about Lá Palma volcano air photos?!? It must b too hard to people there…..but thrilling shots….

    • Well, I’ll fly over when it’s safe and once it’s over there. Would love to fly over as well, but the drones get closer to the volcano and it’s all a restricted area. I have seen the volcanic ash cloud from far away, but to get closer to it wouldn’t make much sense at the moment. So stay tuned, as soon as it’ll be possible, the images will be coming 😊

  2. Hi Stan,

    Great pic – made me laugh! Need something this Covid business seems to be never ending. Cases rising sharply again in England!

    Best,

    John.
