Winging it

It was really windy today. I was out in the paddock picking coffee for the first time this season when an unusual something appeared overhead:

A motorised glider (or so I presume).

When I say it was really windy today, I mean it was REALLY windy, and gusty as well, not smooth and constant. I was amazed a glider could fly in these conditions and kept expecting this one to get flipped over. It didn't, as far as I could see, and I just hope it made it back to ground in one piece.
