Some photos from a very enjoyable day.
Another good day at Pole Cottage yesterday. Some good flying then a shower. The locals and some of our party went home. The rest flew for another very pleasant hour and a half until another heavy shower. Went and packed our planes away in the van but then the rain stopped. Went back to the […]
Thanks to Barry for organizing and everyone who was at Pole Cottage yesterday. Highlights of an excellent day. Barry’s huge living wings glider.
