Boxing Day

With a cloudbase of over 3,000', light winds and a fairly inactive airfield, several intrepid members flew today. We took the rare opportunity to operate off the hard runway and avoid damaging the grass area which has been heavily rained upon in the last few days.

We did half a dozen launches and managed to neatly integrate our operation with the powered aircraft that were also using 24. This provided several members with a rare opportunity to fly from a tarmac runway and gain the experience of using a reference point that was a little less familiar than normal! Also good fun to demonstrate our skills at touching down 'on the numbers' with fully held off landings.
