Sunday 23rd August at the Park. “A chill wind blew, but we all kept smiling” 😎.

Good evening fellow aviators.

Todays weather at the Park wasn’t quite right for Cross Country tasks or extended Local Soaring flights. The cloud base never rose much above 2,400ft and there was very little thermic activity. There was however still plenty of flying going on, and no shortage of willing volunteers keen to help keep the airfield running smoothly 🙂 👍🏻.

Locally, Cloud Base rose to approx. 2,400ft QFE, with a 10-15kt 280 degree upper wind.

The wind had a real chill factor to it today, but nothing appeared to be able to dampen the enthusiasm of the attending Club Members. As the day progressed the temperature did dip considerably with the wind chill. Coats went on and hoods went up to protect us from the wind, but everyone kept smiling. It really was a delight to see the entirely undampened enthusiasm from everyone to enjoy the day 🙂.

Mike J and Mike T, had a productive day instructing.

A chilly but still very pleasant and productive days flying from the Park dear aviators 🙂.

I took a few pictures from the day to share with you all. Hope you enjoy them.

Kind regards.


Lots of Club Members mucking in and getting jobs done at the Park today. John H even got the strimmer out and tended to the grounds around the hangar/club house 🙂 👍🏻.


The longest flights of the day were flown by Dennis S in BNH, and John H in CCU.



The two seater Gliders kept going all day, only pausing briefly for cables before taking to the skies once more.






The enthusiasm to fly, and the enthusiasm to help out at the airfield, remained undiminished right up to the end of the day.
