Despite a very promising forecast, seeing Steve rig his flying machine full of hope, like the rest of us, an overcast sky with the addition of fine drizzle presented itself from about 9.30am. Not daunted, the winch duly took itself up to the westerly end of the airfield (with winch driver of course – Dave), caravan already in situ` from yesterday we managed to get 5 winch launches and 1 motor glider flight of the ground. We welcomed a new reciprocal member, an old school friend of Mike J, who took 4 winch launches. Needless to say we did try to prize some old school secrets out of him!! We managed 1 instructor training flight into the bargain.
Maybe the Wednesday forecast will have “got it wrong” and we will have better weather than forecast – which is still “iffy” at the moment. We do have an instructor and winch driver on standby just in case the thermal gods come out to play!!
