After checking all the weather forecasts and visiting both ends of the runway, instructors Ged and Rick decided that today would be a non flying day. Apparently the wind was very gusty over the airfield and the 40 knot winds forecast for later in the day would make the day too challenging. Later the windsock showed the wisdom of this difficult decision, waving almost fully vertical before hanging limp and then sitting perfectly horizontal. If you looked from the side The windsock pole was trying to bend under then strain.

A disappointing ( or should that be "character forming" ) day.
