Wednesday 26th August at the Park. “Not much thermal lift around today, but we kept ourselves busy and bathed in glorious sunshine all day” 😎.

Good evening fellow aviators.

Todays weather at the Park wasn’t quite right for Cross Country tasks or extended Local Soaring flights. The Park was nonetheless a hive of activity, with plenty of flying and lots of work going on to keep our Park in tip top condition.

Locally, Cloud Base was approx. 2,500ft QFE. Early in the day the upper wind was approx. 25kts at 280 degrees, backing and easing to 17kts at 270 degrees later in the day.

There wasn’t much thermal lift around the Park today, however the enthusiasm to fly remained undiminished and the launches kept on going, pausing only briefly for cable retrieves. The whole of the Park was a buzz today with Members keeping busy with all the essential jobs that keep a Club running smoothly πŸ™‚ πŸ‘πŸ».

Mike J had a productive day instructing, and John H was on hand to Pilot the Tug for the days aerotows.

A very pleasant and productive day at the Park πŸ™‚.

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

Kind regards.

Well dear aviators, I’m really not sure what caption to write beneath this picture πŸ˜‚.


Caption competition perhaps? πŸ˜‰.
