I started by mowing the remaining part of the airfield that wasn’t cut last weekend. When I finished mowing, I joined Roger Green and Malcolm Wilton-Jones to help with the electrical installation in the two containers. By the end of the day only an insulation check, fitting of the LED tubes and the final connection in the generator hut remained. In the hangar Colin continued with the ARC work on DMX. Steve Lewis spent time fitting the new weather station to the launch point.

By 15:54 the K8 was heading into the sky with Steve Fletcher aboard. After scratching around under some darker patches, he eventually managed to climb away and return after 21 minutes.

Hopefully some two-seater flying will be returning soon. Watch this space.
