Did you ever experience a near-death situation? Shortly after this picture was taken (with a fixed gopro), I encountered one 😅 While I was turning on to the right downwind (in Dinslaken), I noticed a Cessna 172 coming at me from the left. Fast. I immediately pulled up and managed to escape an extremely dangerous situation. What happened was, the Cessna pilot announced he would join the traffic circuit a few moments before, saying he was 5 minutes away from the field. I heard this while rotating and initiating my climb. As you can see I was looking in that direction (turning right crosswind) but failed to see the aircraft until the very last moment. It's hard to say who was at fault, but these things do tend to happen at information airfields, where no control tower is responsible for separating traffic joining and leaving the circuit ✈
