Sunday 5th September

After waiting for the rain to stop we finally got going at 12.30 and despite the lack of useable lift Liz flew one of her friends in JMX for 23 minutes beating the next nearest flight by a whole 13 minutes :-)

Congratulations to Richard Greenaway who convinced Richard Dann to sign him “off checks”, his manic grin said it all……..well done!

Finally I can’t let the opportunity pass without mentioning the slightly desperate radio call we received from the winch. It seems a gust of wind slammed the door of the winch shut leaving Paul Prentice stuck inside, the tone of his voice as he asked for assistance was priceless!!!!

In the end those who hung on for conditions to improve all had a flight so it well worth the wait.
