|View from another airfield: Harrowbeer looking north-east at 0800. |
Cap cloud and a wavy edge clearly in evidence.
|A good turnout at the club today, sadly to be thwarted by...|
|...the field being akin to a waterbed, as the tyremarks clearly show..|
So we busied ourselves with keeping the woodburner going (it was bitterly cold outside – Maslow's hierarchy of needs applies..!), some teach-ins about spins, tightly banked turns and the ziz-zag circuit, whilst the Greens (Barry and Roger) got on with selling their cobra trailer to a couple from Sutton Bank (Yorkshire), whose departure was delayed by the fact that the 12-pin electrical connector disintegrated into - 12 pins, 7 wires and no idea where each should go..! With the help of Pete Howarth, however, (one of those unusual males who reads first before assembling) a instruction card was found that enabled the right coloured wire to be screwed into the correctly numbered pin and eventually, after a finger numbing half an hour, they were away.
With the next couple of days promising dry, sunny weather, there is good reason to hope for flying to be possible on Wednesday.
