The second man in space…* (5th May)

Bob said we’d be packed up by 1.30. We all agreed…

At 5 we were looking up at Steve B in the K13 diminished by height to a mere speck.

In between we all went soaring, ok so cloudbase wasn’t great for most the day but there were good climbs out there. I think Bob spinned (span/spun just doesn’t sound right) every foot he gained back down again. Darren’s daughter showed me how to soar on her first flight, just as well as i couldn’t manage it today and everyone else had at least a half hour flight.

*on this day in 1961 Mercury-Redstone 3 carried Alan Shepard in to space.
His flight lasted 15mins, well down the leader-board of today’s flight times.
