Saturday 8th July will probably go down in club history due to the sheer number of achievements.
It wasn’t the 41 launches, neither was it the 29:45 hours flown, no it was a culmination of:
3 first solos by Adrian, Bob and Martin
1 x 5 hour silver duration flight by Selvam with 5:08
1 x 2 hour bronze leg flight, by Alex with 2:16
2 x Silver height claims, by Alex and Selvam
and finally but, not least, 1 x 50k silver distance attempt by John
The Three Amigos show their happy faces! I think Adrian is smiling but it may just be wind……
John was “just practising” when he landed out at Oaksey Park.
I must say if you are going to pick a field you will not do better than this one, shame it wasn’t about 4k further away from Rivar!
So a nice airfield and a very nice pub nearby..
Oh nearly forgot, thanks to Pete Ellison who kindly took charge of a half day course for me and thanks also to Richard who supervised the putting away of the toys whilst I was retrieving John.
