Photo of Ueshiba

I've asked this question before, but does anyone know about this series of photos of O Sensei?

I saw them in a book in the 80's.

O is seen standing, with 5 black belts running towards him. In the second photo, he is seen suspended in mid air, horizontal, eyes wide open, and the black belts are in the air,all flying away from him.

It was a really impressive photo, much better than the randori you see on Youtube. I can't find it anywhere.

Can anyone remember it, or have seen it?

Maybe he was on a hidden wire!!

It was a really impressive photo. You couldn't stage or choreograph it.
