|Angela Luckett enjoyed an extended soaring flight|

|My view of Tavistock from the back seat of HXP at 2300 feet|
As the afternoon worn on it became obvious that the "cloud street" above the airfield was, in fact, convergence. Pilots reported climbing up the side of the convergence ending up 1000 feet above the 2300 feet cloudbase. Great fun.
|Barry ready to take off in the silent - notice the convergence cloud above|
|Rick's view of the runway - it looks very long from here|
|K8 waiting under the convergence|
