Saturday 15th Nov

..will be known for all time as the mid-November day when it was too hot to have a jumper on…








The early morning fog and cloud lifted/dispersed – or at least split so there was some space between… The sun shone through the broken strata of cloud and with virtually no wind – lightest of southeasterlies – it was warm and pleasant. And SOOOOO pretty – although you had to be careful as, in defiance of all logic, a bank of cloud built up on the approach which meant circuits could be interesting – or indeed impossible. Even Steve Barber was flummoxed as to how a lee ridge appeared to be throwing up ororgraphic, but those who flew can attest that it did it all day. At heights between 200′ and 700′. If you have a suggestion as to what it was about, do share it. I don’t know about anyone else, but I had a great time!
