Check out this brilliant shot of a plane in flight, aerotowing a glider into the sky!

These guys clearly took off from the nearby Devon & Somerset Gliding Club, where we can see several other gliders, presumably waiting for their own time in the sky.

You can see all sort of pictures of gliders at the DSGC’s homepage, and read more about Gliding at Wikipedia.
