This time we did it! So many times in
the past we have had to turn back through bad weather.
We woke and decided that the wind was
acceptable and provided we chose a hard runway we would give flying a go.
Our friend Paul had taken his Bulldog to Cardiff as he was having some IMC
however a quick call to him suggesting we meet at Dunkeswell brought his usual
response Ah yes!.
He quickly thought through his plans
and we arranged to meet for lunch. He had friends also flying from Cardiff
that day, and a further group coming from Elstree and they all agreed to join
us, it was going to be quite a party.
We arrived first and filled up with
fuel and headed for the cafe for a coffee. Shortly after the others
arrived and we spent a great time talking, eating and exchanging stories.
