Today was amazing.
I don’t think I can really elaborate on that as it really was something special, but I might as well try!
The first good weather in a few weeks saw a mass migration of aircraft to Turweston as well as a mass departure from the locals. All but one Flying Club aircraft left, including the new aircraft, G-BOKX. The light was very good although some southerly clouds meant that it deteriorated early on at around 4 thus I figured it was easier to concede defeat and head home.By far the two highlights of my day were:
- The call over the radio that went like this “Ryanair 820 climbing Flight Level 210 proceeding on route” through Turweston’s radio. In case you are wondering, FL210 (Flight Level 210) is the same as 21000 feet. The highest most people call when over the field is 4000ft (FL040).
- When I heard the following “Spitfire X-Ray India, you should be good to do the run and break then a normal circuit. Nothing known to affect.”
As you may have noticed, I am trying a new presentation system, it would be nice to hear your thoughts on it. Thank you!
