Thursday - final day of flying at Aboyne

Richard says:
Today was our final day of flying here in Aboyne.

The day started with Steve and Richard going on a short soaring flight utilising the ridges down the Dee Valley to Ballater. Although the scenery was spectacular both pilots we shocked by the devastation caused by last month’s severe flooding.

Paul shortly followed in 319 on his second flight on type.

A short rain / snow shower stopped play over lunch and then flying continued in the afternoon.

The gliders were derigged this evening in preparation for tomorrow's easterly winds and snow showers.

Tomorrow several Booker and Deeside members are travelling to the Lecht ski resort for a day’s skiing and snowboarding on what promises to be good snow prior to our trip home on Saturday.
