Last week (Wednesday 19th) saw many flying Glyn's task of Lynham, Lasham and Didcot (315, A2 & 325) plus a lot of other single seaters merely enjoying the excellent soaring. John Hubberstey finished his Silver C with a quick 50k to Enstone - he was a little too enthusiastic with his first pull off at 700' (worried about the 1% rule) and landed back but was not deterred and launched again and got to Enstone in about 2 hours. Saturday was again busy with lots of you out enjoying the light winds and reasonable thermals.
This week has produced a strange mix of weather with a funnel cloud appearing to the west of the airfield and this evening a strange and eerie low level mist drifting in across the airfield.
