Tuesday evening was fine with a bumpy west/south west wind general direction. About 8 fliers turned up to sample the conditions.

There was a guy there on Sunday morning with a suit and tie… looked totally out of place… well he was a TV1 reporter. He did an interview regarding safe drone flying  with Mark and Leo which made it to prime time TV.  TV Stars ;o)

The ALES competition was held and won by Keith Elliott. Interesting flying conditions for gliding. Some quadcopter flyers setup a course and did some flying. Over on the Power Strip one Rob Burns got his Wings Badge. Congratulations Rob. Your shout on the WMAC bar… err… there isn’t one.  Well lemonades all round then ;o)


A few photos from Sunday…
