Monday 11th July

The forecast of a really good day attracted half a dozen members to grab an extra day’s flying today, and many thanks to Gordon for flying the tug and Clive for helping with the launching. Top cover came in mid afternoon and caused an early shutdown, but for several hours cloudbase was over 6000ft and several flights of around 200K were flown.

The image above shows the dense smoke off the fires on Salisbury Plain. Just like the stubble fires of old.
