The 26th June was a hot day with more summer Friday flying on the airfield. Al Staceys MKIII is back on site. It was rigged and flown with a number of people being converted to it. At present we have 4 aircraft tucked behind the air cadet fleet. The Prefect will be departing soon though.

A couple of car loads of our VGS collegues from 622 VGS at Upavon dropped in to have a flight and sample the delights of Will Embrey’s BBQ cooking.

Once again another enjoyable evening.

A little disappointing from the weather point of view last Friday. We managed to set up the airfield in time for the drizzle, had a handful of launches in between showers and then got stopped by more heavy rain.
On a more positive note, welcome to our latest flying syndicate member Shaun Stent, for those that don’t know him Shaun was OC 621 before Dave. Shaun got the best of Friday’s weather and after a small number of ‘currency’ flights flew the Sedbergh solo again. There is photographic evidence although we were unsure whether a wide enough lens was available to catch the wide grin on approach!
