The first dry day of New Year and soarable to boot!
Having made safe a storm damaged panel on the hangar roof, we received some bad news. Doughnut man had left one pack at the checkout! But tears were choked back, upper lips remained braced and flying commenced late morning.
Best flight was Paul Bryant’s who thermalled off towards Newbury in a fresh SW wind, only to lose it all scrambling back to the airfield. Richard and Daren almost matched this longest flight, but the additional weight meant they were pipped into second place by one minute. Honours even I’d say.
Back in the club house the technicians were bidding for a record number of people repairing a Ka13 simultaneously. Quite novel really, five people working and one watching rather than the normal vice-versa.
