Now that is special, both the pics and being able to say you are one of the few to have that accolade in your log book!

Well done, and thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your nice comments !!

It's the second time that I land on glaciers but I don't think I will do the "mountain" rating. Anyway I like to go up there, that is cool.

Yes, you have to take care of the exposure settings in order to avoid over-exposure !

Here are some more pictures

Absolutely stunning work from both of you guys! :clap: What glacier were the landings conducted on or the general area of the flights? I'm back in Switzerland this summer and might just have to take another pleasure flight with Air Zermatt over the Matterhorn :biggrin: There's something about flying around the mountains...
