After Friday being so wet we could not have asked for better weather on Saturday. Although slightly breezy at times this was more than made up for by the strength of the thermals. The site of open cockpit gliders sharing thermals with the Venture with its engine off was different to say the least.

A small amount of flying took place on both days at the weekend with every flight on Saturday being a soaring flight in the region of an hour. Sunday produced probably the best visibility in terms of both distance and clarity of the year so far.

The Historic Flight was busy today with the T.21, Prefect, Mk3 & Venture out. Unfortunately the Annual maintenance on the Swallow was not completed in time to make it a full house. 615 VGS from Kenley came to experience the ‘wooden era’ with each of the visitors having a go in the T.21, T.31 and Venture. A day with absolutely fantastic visibility and reasonable thermals was forced to finish slightly early due to the wind steadily increasing throughout the day until it was out of limits. The day was rounded off with a well attended excellent BBQ.

A busy day in North Wilts today at the Historic Flight. Yet again we were blessed with soarable weather. Several good flights were made in the T.21 in an effort to stay cool.
