315 landing back after BOB-SHP-GRW-BIC-BO1-BOO
Other achievements during the week include conversions into the Pegasus 318 for John Lambie and Stuart Whiteside. Today also resulted in a first solo for Nick Merveldt in CFA which he also managed to soar for 40 minutes. Congratulations to them.

The overcast and low cloudbase prevented launching early on Saturday morning and we were fortunate to see a good formation take off of the Fiat G-46 and Yak 50 to then join up with another Yak 50 presumably off to an air display somewhere. All didn't go quite to plan for the Fiat which suffered a minor technical issue with its undercarriage and it had to return to Booker - the pilot dealt with the situation very professionally and it was off flying again later in the day.
