Today saw some fantastic soaring flights with the Swallow climbing to over 5000ft. The Sedbergh had a rather interesting flight climbing up the front of a large cell at more than 4 knots with the spoilers fully open.

9th April started Sunny before rain and cloud stole most of the day. There was a clearance late afternoon which produced beautiful blue skies and even some soaring.

Saturday was going to be a quiet day with 3 people flying the Swallow. As it turned out a few more became available and a great afternoon was had in the sun.
Initially very windy the Swallow had some good thermal flights, as the wind abated the Sedbergh joined in the soaring.
Sarah Hall got current again after a stint of maternity leave and has been flying the Swallow with plenty of willing babysitters on the ground!!
Over 5 hours flown!
