into the pit

Winter is officially (just about) with us. Here then is a quick reminder of the current time-scales
we're working to before things once again slowly start to improve...

21 November 2016

more from the archives...

This dates back to 1953....chocks away old chap!
recognisable viewpoints detailed below...

several bits of the hallowed turf are clearly visible...

At 27sec. the T21 can be seen flying over the gulley to east of the lane

At 37sec. (facing south) you can clearly see where we fly from...except there's a hedge
running down the middle of the landing area. You can still see evidence of this on Google Earth.
Isn't there a rise (or a dip) in the field somewhere on this line?

At 1min 10sec. again looking south, you can see how clear the
area of land dropping away from the castle used to be.

a silent dream in an indian summer

I think this all happened somewhere in
the middle of September.

plenty of landing lubricant on the patch

the cows sneak up on Eric

his Silent Dream is the flavour of the day...

hmmmm sunlight through wings

more of a glider guider's wet dream than a silent dream

a giant banana cruises overhead looking for its dinner no doubt...

the Silent Dream scampers away

I can sense a theme building....

some discussion over what this lovely looking model was...
suggestions welcome!

just a little more of this beauty

I hope you note that for once, there's no shortage of flying shots! 

no sign of the model eating flying banana, so they're carelessly frolicking in the lift again....

but it's spotted hovering at altitude, ready to dive on its prey!

Time to launch the Fyffe seeking missile
