Pilots lined up for take off
The most nerve racking part of the flight is walking down the extremely steep take off ramp. If you fell nothing would stop you for a bruising 15 yards.
I have enjoyed drifting across the landscape in hot air balloons and flying in noisy ultralights, but this is the best. The only sound is the air rushing by as you pirouette thought the sky. Totally amazing.
You can see the take-off ramp under the pilot's right arm.

What a spectacular view
