Flying again. It was just the best day.

Having not managed to get out in G-FOZZ for a good few weeks I took the opportunity today to go on a short flight to stretch my wings. I was in for a treat.

The weather was perfect. Cold, severe clear for miles and completely still air. I tried a max power cruise and got a TAS of 184 knots at just 3000 feet. Not something I normally do due to rising fuel costs but I am glad I did. It is just amazing the effect that cold air has on that engine.

I landed at a wonderful little airfield owned by ex superbike racer Jamie Whitham and had a cup of tea with some of the local flying members in the international arrivals cabin/static caravan. What a very nice bunch. Mr Whitham popped in soon after and was equally charming.

I don't know what is around the airfield but I strongly recommend you drop in to say hello.

I quick journey back and

after I parked G-FOZZ in the hangar at the wonderful Hangar 3 facility.
