By Bonanza to Sherburn

Today we went to Sherburn in Elmet for the first time after many attempts as we have heard all about the wonderful cafe etc etc.

To get there posed its usual challenge of a huge bank of cloud over the Pennines stretching as high as the class A airpspace above but after some dodging clouds and hills in the Bonanza we managed to pick a way through the valleys to get ourselves there.

It was extremely busy at Sherburn with helicopters darting here there and everywhere and while it was a nice little airfield I really cant see what the fuss is. I would much prefer a trip to Kirkbride, Caernarfon or Sleap for my bacon butty as you can sit watching the planes come and go. At Sherburn the cafe is just a bit too far from the runway for my liking. Anyway little Fozz (the plane was named after the baby's nickname given to him by my mother) enjoyed his trip to Sherburn I think and spent his time pointing at overflying planes and shouting "dah" which I think means "plane". Actually he shouts "dah" at eveything. But he certainly loved the planes going overhead. I am glad he seems to be getting the bug.

Anyway thats another 1.5 hours in the book and now 3 hours for 2006. That puts me about 1 hour behind already for doing 100 hours in 2006 in the Bonanza A36
