They said Tuesday would be good….

… and it was. Colin changed this week’s midweek day to Tuesday (12th April), which was a good call or we’d have all missed out. At first, every launch soared away, but then it got harder low down and some flights were only quick circuits – commiserations to those who didn’t connect, including our visitor from Parham who desperately wanted to fly back home. But if you got that first thermal, it was a fast climb to 5000ft+, even just short of 6500ft by 5pm. Subject to ratification, congratulations to the three pilots who got their silver height climbs, two in consecutive flights in the K8.
