Home ยป Another great day at the Mynd


A nice air to air photograph of a visiting Skylark.


Well, that was fun, 61 launches much of it colourful vintage gliders taking advantage of 6kt+ average climbs to a 5500ft cloud base, no great distances covered but congratulations Martin Howitt and John McLaughlin who both re-solo’d and Steve Rudge who progressed to Stage 3.

Thanks to Dave Crowson for tirelessly instructing, Charles Carter for looking after the trial lessons, Roger for flying anyone and everyone in the Capstan, Helen for providing some excellent food and last but not least thank you to those working very efficiently on the airfield who didn’t fly to ensure others could.

This evening is steak and quiz night.
