Wednesday 3rd December


What a delightful day.  Sun was out, wind blowing from the north.  Launches of up to 2,200′ were available (in the K8 and 2,100′ in the K13).  Not quite enough wind to get the ridge working reliaby but it did improve as the day progressed.  Rod H just pipped Bill O for longest flight honours with his 26 minutes.  Unlike Sunday when no one made double digit flight times there were 10 today (of the 26 launches).
This is what midweek flying is about – enjoyable flying, good company and donuts 🙂
The Skybrid winch was in use thanks to Peter E (plus helpers) – radiator leak on Saturday then removed, repaired, refitted and back online on Wednesday – pretty impressive.
