Try anything once......
The weekend was less exciting than forecast from a cross country point of view, though the weather on Saturday was quite exciting with big showers and hail. On Sunday it was all a bit calmer, so Graham decided to try out his new 'instrument flying' hood. For this he needed some brave - or foolish - person to sit in the front and tell him where he was. Unfortunately the battery he chose didn't have much life in it so the turn and slip was a bit uninformative, and it turned out that the compass was low on fluid and wasn't much help either.
Instrument flying without instruments is really better as a spectator sport.
