Our day started with two young guest pilots from North Dorset Gliding Club (NDGC) Thomas and Nicholas Pike accompanied by mum and dad. Both Thomas and Nicolas flew with instructor Rick Wiles before Thomas went on to fly the K8.

Thank you to the retrieve driver’s Heather and Dave, and our ground crew who work under extremely hot conditions. I played crafty and spent the whole day in the launch hut checking them out and back in again.
Probably the best bank holiday of the year.
