We arrived at the airfield and checked planes
ready for takeoff. Michael was to fly with Paul in his Bulldog plane
(G-DOGG) and learn some of the intricacies of aero rolls. John was to fly
with us in our plane (G-MDAY)
The day was a little hazy but visibility
improved as the flight progressed. It was great flying past Popham, Lasham
and then over Alton towards Guildford. Lovely sights of the Hogsback and
Cathedral. Then on towards Redhill using the M25 as our heading.
Strangely there were no planes in the Redhill hold circling over the motorway
junction. Then onto pick up the railway line towards Ashford and past all
the hops fields.
We landed and headed for the fuel pumps.
Having filled the planes we decided to fill our tummies. There were many
people enjoying a day parachuting and some flying their model aeroplanes.
Also two pilots took to the skies to perform some fantastic manoeuvres.
