out of the gloom

The autumn flying drought continues, but Eric and Simon report back from an age long past, an epoch which lasted all of about forty eight hours; The British Summer!

Baldock readies itself for a day of aero towing

 Fox's flat field flight fettle

 radio fettle

failed servo fettle

 the starting grid

 men looking up

joiner envy

load test leads to haemorrhoid rupture

Simon aspires to be part of the infamous 'Ghost Squadron'


  1. Brilliant pics, a great reminder of that calm, hot, sunny day. Thermals within easy reach, and for those with the cahunas, vertical towing! Jef

    1. All credit to Eric for the photos, hopefully I'll be able to join in next year!
