missed misdemeanour




Simon vs. fullsize





slope police move in to check his credentials...




....all seems in order, though they do recommend that the camera lens gets a proper clean.


spotted in Maidstone


Lidl is stocking up in readiness for the new EU / Home Office
regulations that kick in at the end of July.

Weighs less than 200 grams and is small enough to not
be visible beyond the 400ft altitude restriction....perfect!

Breaking news from Charlie up on the hill.....




....Cookham Wood Hill that is, just in case you were getting in a flap!

a couple of weeks ago...


A few weeks ago we started to enjoy the start of
the spring air...



Fly-over from one of the last of the few.




Fly-past... one of the many.



Followed by the obligatory Mark landing sequence shots...




mirror, signal, spoilers....



...handbrake turn



Mark signs 'job's a goodun' for the
benefit of those with landing-assessment-impairment syndrome.



Meanwhile over in combat corner...




I smell pink man-flesh!






Gary is king of the wings today.



Enter the Opterra.






Looks as if combat is back for 2018!

a good day



We waited and waited, and finally both winter and the mist cleared....


team Swiss





Swiss Tony peaks over the dashboard having left
his booster at home




Blue sky, clouds and flying. What could be better?







The Backscatter effect continues to bring fragments of slope archaeology to the surface.







Pete's Salto loves the conditions









More like this in the coming season!




Marks treats us to a low pass.




lovely scalie struggled a little in the breeze




Mark's back up there somewhere...




...just there...




and safely back again from his second to last flight of the day,
which as we all know in sloping superstition is in fact his last flight of the day

decayed decade


More discovered hard drive memories from a decade ago.

against the grain


As you've probably noticed we're a bit short on easterly slopes in this neck of the woods.
As such, desperation drives us to try any lump or bump available.



foamies only at this site





how many miles of east facing sea wall would you like?




with such a tight lift band, low pass are compulsory 








stealth foamie poised to clobber Simon
square in the back of the head




both foamie and victim bounce back



Mud Man informs us that landing out is not recommended




Nobody managed a rail slide, but maybe we'll be back
in better weather and greater numbers. Summer combat BBQ anyone?

old hard drive


10 years ago to the day this happened....




Maiden flight of the '28 IIRC


















like a pro- flying accessories carried in a Tesco carrier bag
