|Outings in 2016- Always the optimist, and assuming we can make lots of flights in 2016|
|13 January||Just pleased to be in the air - a little troll around the countryside|
Sun is out, wind although cold, not too strong and down the runway, so why
Spent a lovely hour in the air going to Devizes and back
A short trip to Popham to meet up with some friends and then on to White
Waltham for late lunch before returning home.
Rather breezy landing home but a most enjoyable day
At last a day with a forecast of light winds and no rain. So we flew
to Brimpton to enjoy their fly in. Burgers excellent,
company excellent, maybe a little too much 'sad entertainment' (those attending will understand) but a good day for
the majority who attended
Beautiful day for a trip up and along the Avon and Kennet Canal, then back
to put the plane in for it's annual.
She was flying well so no problems we hope
Interesting day at Wings and Wheels in Henstridge. Met some lovely
people and saw some amazing cars However weather
needed much to be desired. Thunder, lightening and terrific rain storm kept us on the ground and many planes away. Never
the less we had a great day.
A quiet trip in light winds and sunshine to Brimpton airstrip for a burger
and chat to friends. Amazingly one we had not
seen for 8 years, so lots to catch up on. Great day
We had a wonderful evening at the End of Season BBQ (last Thursday) at
Popham. Today we flew to the End of
Season Fly-in at Popham. Great weather, met new and old friends, even gave an friend from the past a ride. Only a
few small showers that soon passed giving amazing rainbows, although we saw both ends of the double rainbows
- sadly no treasure for us.
Very light winds, and pleasant sunshine. Definately a day to be in
the air. Rather chilly and fog developing
in the valleys not helped by the many bonfires. Great local flight and tasty sausage baguette afterwards.
Once again light winds although foggy to start with. Hoping that it
may clear, we set off for the airfield.
Fortunately it paid off as we had a lovely local flight and just got back in time to refuel the plane and ourselves.
