High Flight

I echo Alastair’s comment – this was an extraordinary Day. I took an aerotow in G-DEHM at 13:06, and eventually picked up a strong thermal at the ‘usual’ place over the farm in the valley at around 1500ft. This thermal just kept on giving, and without much ado I was fairly swiftly lifted to over 7,000ft, and eventually topped out at 9002ft QFE. (This photo was taken on the way up) After marvelling at the fabulous view, I took the opportunity of a gentle cross-country via SHM/MEL/TIS/SHA without any of the usual apprehension about getting home. I can’t imagine that I, or G-DEHM, will be likely to experience anything quite like that day any time soon.
