November 7th went very well indeed really. John Tullett and Dougal Wickham opened the scoring with a 35m flight and then the old firm of John Tullett and John Spence replied with a 49m flight. This was to have a follow-on effect but more of that later. Steve Barham rocked up and produced a 1hr 7m flight in the PW5. He hasn't told me anything about it. The instructors having had enough of Dougal Wickham flying in front of them, sent him solo and to show it was not a fluke, he turned in a 38m flight. Well done Dougal both for that and applying yourself assiduously to your training. John Tullett, seeing what Dougal was up to, launched in TE and was away for 49m.
Below: A happy Dougal Wickham. The flight completed.
Les Sharp and the Twin rolling to a stop:
Now for height gains of a different sort. Two men working on the replacement of HT cables on the line down to the Power Station site at Port Taranaki. Prior to this the old cables had been inspected by the occupants of wee baskets cranked along the lines. Watching as the vertical insulators were negotiated was most engaging!
I'm not sure what would
happen if he encounter-
ed a dodgy bit of wire!
