"home". We flew together in formation, breaking at the circuit
of White Waltham to adhere to their noise abatement requirements before landing
on Runway 25. We taxied to the fuel pumps and both planes were
filled. Food was then the order of the day for our tummies.
Excellent bacon baguettes although Paul ventured into the world of chicken with

signed in at the Tower gave them our free landing vouchers promising to return
another day. We then taxied over to the flying club where Paul had friends

This may well be our last flight in
