Winter Flying

With the 'Beast from the East' about to descend on us the club were lucky to have such a decent weekend to finish February. Soaring took place on all 3 days although it was Friday which produced the best climbs. Freed from childcare duties, Richard Abercrombie managed to clock up well over 5 hours in total as well as reaching nearly 11,000'. There were even rumours that there were some thermals! We are lucky to fly in an area that produces such fantastic conditions.

Richard took some photos of his flights.

10,000' - So cool even the panel wears shades.
