Saturday 4 July - a vintage day

Early sunshine gave way to overcast and the threat of rain, so no cross country pilots appeared, and they missed the excellent afternoon of sunshine and thermals which kept us busy with club flying - David H did an hour in the K18 for his bronze and cadet Mike Gatfield passed his field landing check and now only needs another hour's flight to get his bronze so he can set off cross country.

We were also treated to a display of vintage gliders with the Vintage Gliding Club's Whispering Wardrobes weekend. Graham's elegant red Petrel and Nick's improbable-looking 9.7m Hutter were among the gliders to appear at the launch point. And here's another.
