|Who’d Have Thought It? |
After yesterday’s rain today was surprisingly bright and clear.
|One of today’s visitors was Lisa Postle, a sailmaker from Plymouth who flew with Peter Howarth.|
|Lisa’s husband Andy also flew with Peter.|
|Crewing Up: Peter assists Lisa into the front cockpit|
|Dave Downton about to be sent aloft for his first solo.|
Thanks go to Barry Green, for delivering the shopping list of launches demanded, to Heather Horswill for retrieving the cables (and repainting the Gents door in the clubhouse), to Richard Roberts (for repairing that annoying stair tread in the launchpoint), to the logkeeping team (for logging all today's 23 launches) and to Dave himself, for showing selflessness and tenacity throughout the long and winding road that has eventually led to the achievement of solo status. Well Done, Dave!
