Sat 15th was actually fine with a light breeze give or take.
Alan was out to do some stuff on RSR.
At least he only has the front seat out.
Getting close up and personal with said stuff.

WX was good so Heather was out for a fly about seems confident enough....
Getting ready for main engine start
There ya go the big whirly tghing works
Taxi for 09 grass is long and quick catchy
Back after a zoom about I suspect Heather enjoyed it.
Alan went up for some circuits for a bit.
Yup normal angle climb
Mean while the Electricals trench for the Pumps now has some electricals in it.
Mountain as yet undecided

LTH & Fert Truck having some together time
Alan decided to go again so I stowed away in the back.
Alan was practicing Engine failures and Glide approaches. Great fun and you should always be practising these things.
