Wind speeds of 50 knots at times today ensured that the doors were kept closed and the hatches battened. Lots of creaks and groans from the tortured building and trees.
As usual, quite a bit of hangar activity. Work continues on VN’s annual. The off-grid power system delivered many kilowatt hours and the generator was provoked into life for a few minutes only by deliberately loading up the system. Otherwise we harvested wind and sun for all our needs. More work continues this week to bed-in and refine the system.
Tim Dews kindly delivered his Grob Twin Acro EZE to help us through our heavy maintenance period. Not often a glider gets delivered by someone wearing patent leather shiny shoes, but we see do some firsts at The Park.
A windy week in prospect. Roll on spring.
