     The sky looks great who will come and fly with us?

       

 

  Despite the less than promising weather forecasts and overnight rain ... the few of us on hand had gliders DI'd by 9.00 am and were looking skyward and licking our lips with anticipation.

More by co-incidence than through any form of pre-planning, the flight-line at 06 was made up entirely of single-seaters (SR, RV, RS and JY) ... it was also the first time that all three K6's have been at the flight-line together.

The three musketeers ... (Athos, Aramis and Porthos?) ... Ka6-Cr Sierra Romeo, ES-KA6 Romeo Victor and ES-KA6 Romeo Sierra.

The weather looked threatening from time to time but no rain  ... streets were the order of the day and choosing which ones to take was the big challenge. The result ... long enjoyable flights including two "four-hours-plus" flights in SR (Bernard Gonsalves) and RV (Kevin Rodda).
