Not the brightest of conditions to usher in the summer season
flowers on the mound to commemorate our lost and pulverised flying machines
Jeff on form depsite hayfever
slope side catering... very nice it was too!
Gary necks a few in readiness to fly.....
nice selection of flying devices languishing in the grass
...and looking the other way
the wind is on the hill so it's time for....
(rush of blood to its head)
ended with a rush of the nearest planet to its face!
Ready for another attempt and with a little lead
and a teak of differential settings, all was good.
In fact it was so good we forgot to record the event!
Does the longest day make for the longest shadows I wonder?
fast foamie pass from Charlie
it's time for the sunset fly-off...
hoping for more warmth in the near future
in the meantime the evenings start to draw in again!

*** IMPORTANT REQUEST ***
Good morning. We have a request directly from the BMFA's CEO, Dave Phipps.
Now that the BMFA has been granted a meeting with the new Aviation Minister, Baroness Vere of Norbiton, Dave has asked that the BMFA goes into the meeting knowing that all of our members have emailed Baroness Vere to air their concerns at the CAA's proposal.
The Baroness can be reached via - Baroness.Vere@dft.gov.uk
Please let her have your views about why you reject the proposal. Keep your emails polite but heartfelt, let's show the DfT exactly how the flying community feels and the impact the proposals will have.
Click on the links below for further information, the BMFA's thoughts on the proposal, and how to respond to the CAA's consultation. Please act now, do not put this off!
