Winter Flying (9th January)

Ben and I drove down through the mist from London to Hampshire. I doubted that we would be able to fly at all – the forecast had promised sun but here we were in thick mist in the car! We passed the South Downs by Butser Hill and the skies cleared in front of us… Great we thought, we may still be able to fly…

We quickly got set up in the field near Denmead. My motor started but Ben’s was flat due to the cold possibly? I went up for a quick fly and then landed as it is always more fun flying together. I flicked over the propellor by hand and it sparked into life…. Yeeeehaaaaaaaaaa… We were in business and before long we were airbourne looking down on the clouds and the wintry land below us…
