Flying Sunday 11 July 2010

A relatively mild day with a light WNW wind. After a late start due to flat winch batteries and an uncooperative motorfalke starter motor a series of AEF flights took place in KRO from RWY 29.

The first few flights had thermals, with flight of the day to 3500′ in smooth 6kt lift (by Dennis Medlow and without an operating yawstring). Final flights were just circuits as the day cooled down.

Big thanks go to Jon Keatley who ran the winch for most of the day and gave up his flying to let the AEFs fly with Anne and Dennis, and to Christian Medlow who towed back cables from the (stationary) winch to the launch point.
