RAF WITTERING 2nd 3rd OCTOBER 2004

 

Pilots Briefing - First a few words from our CD then from our RAF escort

 

Not many of us choose to sit out in the wind all weekend. The judges? Well they enjoy it don't they?

 

There was a lot of interest to see how others were coping in the15/20 knot (ground level) 45 cross wind.

 

The sun was shining brightly on two very nice Standard Class entries, then it rained -

but we had the use of the best club facilities I have seen, we joined our scorers in the RAF Wittering Model Aircraft Club headquarters, totally secure so club models could be left with complete confidence -.

- workshop facilities too.

 

Sunset on Saturday evening left us wondering what the elements would have in store for us next day

 

Sunday started off with a light wind, the burger van did a brisk trade (better than Saturday) and still much interest in the flying, although I think dinner the previous night, which I understand was excellent, started to take its toll, rain finally set in around 2.00pm.

 

One interruption to our flying on Saturday was the departure and arrival of a Harrier booked for a display, and Andrew, please tell your Father that if is is going electric the batteries go on the inside.

Until next season.
