High Flying MG Owners

davidAll was set for those magnificent men (and ladies) in their flying machines!. The weather had been ordered and the troops were assembling. Unfortunately the weather wasnt what I had ordered as there was a really overcast day followed by lightening and rain. We were all set to start the flying with 14 eager victims, er participants. After signing their Last Will and Testaments or registration forms they were all set for the off.

Someone at the Gliding club suggested it might be a good idea to hold off the launches into the lightening on the basis that sending up 1000 feet on metal into the sky might possibly attract a bolt or two. Once the storm passed over there was a grand rainbow appear. It signalled the start of the aerobatic displays. All that was needed now was the donning of the parachutes and getting into the glider.

 

 

jeff1The order of flyers was set and we were off. Unfortunately, the delay at the start of the evening made us unsure whether all could be fitted it. As the evening progressed it became clear that all fliers would get a go. Eveyone went up except me as it was too dark at that time. Fancy that, organising it and not being able to fly. I hope all you fliers feel guilty at me missing out. Only joking, I wasnt up for it if you pardon the pun.

There were alot of happy faces as many of the group had their first experience of gliding. It was a really good night
