Another busy gliding day

After a frosty start the sun brought lots of keen pilots to Booker. Some began the day with the Bronze briefing on Theory of Flight and instrumentation, there followed a variety of flying. This included trial lessons, course flying, cadets taking advantage of the flights they had earned, field landing practice, instructor prep and just having fun.

With all this going on there was no time to go to the clubhouse for tea so we were delighted when the Tea Dragon turned up in the shape of Nick with his campervan.

The day ended with some more aerobatics flown by the US Army colonel who had come over from Germany to fly with ace instructor Graham (they won't let him fly upside down in Germany). The view of the manoeuvres against the sunset and the evening star was the perfect end to the day.
