Saturday 13th November

The appearance of DI Tim R wearing a jacket confirmed that Winter has definitely arrived. Mind it wasn’t fastened and he was just wearing a tee shirt underneath it. Some us were donning our Ozee’s. Another up and down day but Tim was kept busy in the backseat. I threw down the gauntlet for the longest flight with 8 minutes in the K8 (up till then all flights were 5 minutes). That was comprehensively beaten by both Rob J and Richard D clocking up 12 minutes each.
Cloud of white smoke from the winch end of the airfield hinted that something was not quite right. The broken fan belt was replaced by Ken H, Rob J and Steve B but the attempt to launch following that was abandoned due to misting.
Just 12 launches (1:23 flying time)
