24 July 2007 - Birthday flight to Henstridge
Since Jan received her bus pass yesterday we decided to go on a celebratory flight to celebrate her "coming of age"  We could not fly on her birthday as it was raining the now usual "cats and dogs" 
We could not fly until the afternoon, and with the soggy airfields we decided to head for a hard runway.  Dunkeswell was favourite but we did not have a huge amount of fuel on board and the wind was rather strong and across their runway.  All things considered we changed our minds and headed for Henstridge.
Before landing it was evident that we had made a good decision the surrounding ground was quite waterlogged.

The familiar sight of Henstridge was comforting and confirmation that they had fuel, even more so.

We landed and took on fuel and enjoyed a welcome coffee before we headed for home.  Where we decided that AY deserved a really good clean, before being placed back in the shelter
It was good to be in the air after so much bad weather.  AY is now full of fuel for the weekends adventures.......
