Sunday 25th saw grey overcast with Drizzle/Rain.
Luckily it stopped raining for around 45 minutes to do the Weekly Fuel Test.
LTH looking suitably wet.
One can just make out some Pylons in the background.
Looking North West not to much different.
Not a lot of wind either.
SSF still in bed on a day like this. She had a fly on Friday that will keep her regular.
SNW getting the Hot Towel Treatment....
TVG just chilling.
Now Peter's a good keen man here sorting out the wiring for the Egmont Modellers new !!! Early Warning System !!!.
What this means is Peter is installing a Radio with a Bull Horn Loud speaker out on the Pole Eastern side of Glider Hangar.
As we are for all things that can improve SAFETY and AWARENESS around the Aerodrome we will impliment it. One thing that has become apparent is that the Modellers are having Trouble seeing whats going on down the end of RWY-09 especially on a busy day with Gliding going on as it takes time for them to set up the tow and is easy to forget to look again.
Also the modern day Recreational Aircraft are pretty quiet and can be difficult to hear arriving overhead.
The EM team decided to instigate this excellent SAFETY idea.
So to that end when the EM team are flying they will be able to hear all transmissions and make the call as what to do based on tht information.
Peter starting to do the connecting up bit.
