Sat the 13th was a tad damp with the occasional fine spell.
On arrival I found Sven (Big Chief of the Property section at the Stratford District Council) and friends enjoying some flying activity (Gary & RVH had just been up), Svens a regular comes and watches the flying most weekends.
He also advised they were going to put some picnic tables up in the Visitor parking area. Although a bit surprised they weren't there. I suspect they may arrive quick smart now. :0)
Gary & ONE arriving
Nice Rainbow shot.
Then he's off again
Great shot of Gary & One
Into a Grey sky
Alan & Gary & I had just checked out Alan's Hangar
Alan preparing to go aviate
Looking a tad damp
Even more damp
That fella on the Quad wasn't mucking around.
Having decided it might be a bit to Damp Alan heads back to the Hangar.
One must understand here at Stratford it is an Alpine enviroment. One make the best of any aviation & WX oppitunities. Although one is trained to make the right judgement calls as well such as Alan has here.
All good learning experience to becoming a well rounded aviator with actual real WX experience.
Easier ways to wash the plane as well.
We shall try again Sunday.
