Sunday 6th May

Arrived at the club to find Janus, LS7 and LS3 rigged under a very grey sky – what did they know that I didn’t?  The Janus was first out of the slipps and when it came back to earth after 7 minutes I concluded that it wasn’t really worth rigging.  Hm, got that wrong – next attempt it returned after an hour and half, via Swindon.  Guess they would have stayed airborne if Phil and Carol hadn’t pressing matters to attend to.  Connecting to lift wasn’t a foregone conclusion with only 11 of the 25 launches flying for more than half an hour.  Cloudbase got to 4,000′ and longest flight was 1:52.
