Last weekend saw fairly thick fog sat over the airfield for most of both Friday and Saturday.

On Friday, with flying the Sedbergh out of the question, those assembled started the task of derigging the aircraft in order to do the repair work required after it’s C of A. Once complete, and with the conditions not improved enough to fly the Prefect the decision was made to take the Primary out onto the airfield.

Autotowing the Primary worked a treat just as long as you kept it below the cloud/fog layer. The bottom of this layer sat between probably 150 and 250 feet all day. It lifted briefly to allow Johno to do a lap of the airfield before it lowered again and we stopped flying when we couldn’t see the windsock from the runway anymore.

Great fun!!!

With the fog grounding the Air Cadet fleet for a good portion of Saturday – the Grasshopper was back out for some more Grasshopping.

Try it – it’s fun!
