Outings in 2017- Always the optimist, and assuming we can make lots of flights in 2017
29 April Great to be back in the air, even if it was a little cold.  Flew to VAC flyin at Turweston. 
Gosh the airfield has changed since our last visit, excellent restaurant
21 May We planned to go to a flyin at Popham to meet up with friends.  First we went for a
fly around as it was a nice, although breezy day.  It started off quite cold but progressed
to a very sunny but still breezy day, making the landing back home interesting!!
1 June Flew to Wycombe Airpark to Aero Expo.  Very warm day but enjoyable.  Met lots of people
not seen in a while, bought some new maps and new Pooleys flight guide.  Chatted to some
nice gentlemen about radios and saw lots of planes.  Good day
16 August Plane passed it's annual and bill paid.  Went for a short local and landed at Popham.  Martin took
 and passed his biannual and bill paid.  Flew back home.  All is well with the world
1 September Sun shining, light winds off to LAA Rally at Sywell.  Bonus, wind almost down the runway when
we land just minutes from our scheduled time.  Not bad eh after all the preparations needed.
Great day, sun shone all day, met lots of friends and good food.  Got back just in time to fill
with fuel ready for the next outing.  Really good to fly somewhere and enjoy a full day out.
28 September Flew to Headcorn with Kevin, who took many, many pictures.  Still processing them!!  Lunch,
then back along the coast before heading home.  Great day
19 November Went for a local flight around the area in which we live.  Always interesting to see the village
from the air.  Almost no wind so a lovely smooth flight, although rather cold.
