Meanwhile, out on the airfield the sun was shining and people were enjoying the thermals, amongst them Chris Rowland who celebrated the 50th anniversary of his first flight in a glider. That flight was in a T21 with Blackpool and Fylde GC, then based at Samlesbury, near Preston, but now renamed Bowland Forest GC and based at Chipping, still near Preston. His anniversary flight was in a Junior - considerably less draughty.

Here is a nice picture of today's sky, taken by Chris on an earlier flight in the Falke.
And this is what the sky looked like as it got more showery - and wavy.
