Today was a great flying day at the GHC, a slow grey start which then very quickly cleared shortly after Gary took his winch launch in the YS53.

I then took it up with Pete Ritchie for a half hour flight in wave interfered with thermals and then Bruce Cooper took over the reigns flying with Ian McKillop. Also enjoying flights in the 53 where John Carpenter, Dave Hopgood and Howard Torode.

Mark Wills and Paul Wheatcroft flew the Foka 4 and at the end of the day both aircraft had flown several hours between them.

At one point we could see the Sovereign thermalling high above the airfield with the very distinctive orange shape of the Foka 4 below.
