More Super Cubbing - Crosswind takeoff and landings

Today was another Super Cubbing day at Whanganui. Chris [another Club pilot] and I flew up this morning and back this afternoon in WAC's Cessna 172, ZK-FLT. The rest of the flying though was in Piper PA18A-150 Super Cub, ZK-BKN.

For me, the flight was some crosswind takeoffs and landings, dual then solo. Fun times! What remains is the paperwork then I'm signed off. Still so much to learn though :-)

This first picture is of me flying the Super Cub in the circuit. At this point, we're mid-downwind for runway 14.

Me flying the Super Cub!

Next up is Chris about to touch down, again on runway 14.

Last up is the view as we headed south/ east back to Wellington. I could do with some help with this one... if you click on the photo for a larger one, there are some thin, dark, almost arrow shaped clouds in the foreground... what are these and how do they form? They are quite distinct from the cumulus clouds in the background.
