Requesting clearance for takeoff…

On the way home from Falun the other day something out in the marshland caught our eye. Finding the first available place to stop the car and hop out we were met with the magnificent sight of a Crane wondering about in the early evening sunshine.

An incredible bird to see, that almost looks like some kind of prehistoric creature wondering about in the high grass. Now afterwards, we know that she had a mission, she was taxiing to the end if the runway ready for take off.

Clearance from the tower and within a few seconds it was airbourne. Such elegance from a bird that stands ove 1 meter tall and weighs in at 4-6kg
