Fun in the snow - 22nd December

Whilst the snow may have brought Heathrow to a standstill, flying operations have not been brought to a complete halt at Booker. The gliding club managed to have the first fixed wing launches for a week earlier today (but do check with the office for normal flying operations).

Will Ellis stunned us all with his aptly named "Blizzard" glider as it roared around the skies blending with the sky, snow and cloud in equal measures - mean piloting.

Will H then tried out his ski equipped ME109 - on this occasion the camouflage made it easier to see. Brilliant fun until the freezing cold stopped play.

Great news - we are through the Winter Solstice, time to get ready for next seasons flying!
