I know this is slightly cheeky, but I wonder if anyone is interested in my Libelle that I have just refurbished. It’d be nice to keep it in the club, but I already have someone enquiring about it, so I thought I’d better see if anyone is interested locally. Here are some pics – It’d be around the £10500 mark with the instruments fitted including colibri logger, FLARM, a trailer that tows really well etc.
A group of Pilots from Staffs made the trip to the Borders GC at Millfield a couple of weeks ago. They had a fantastic time, flying in wave and ridge over quite a few days. No more to report – here are some pics from the trip supplied by Pauline and Nigel Frost.
All, I have paid the bill now, so we are back on line! This from Paul Cooper about last weekend:
LLT was given a number of runs to the other side of Newport and back in no time at all thanks to a convenient cloud street, many others enjoyed autumn soaring and a thanks to Barney for a long road trip north to be duty dog tug pilot.
Lots of soaring and happy faces today on the field. Thanks to Ian and Steve for instructing and running the field and the many willing helpers towing, winching and retrieving. What a fine way to spend a Thursday!
John ready to attack the enemy!
Our treasurer wondering where this LS4 is dragging him, and where it might all end!
Getting away. The advantage with being low is that the scenery is far prettier. Paul didn’t seem to appreciate this advantage as we approached Corvedale below 1500′ pointing out the old grain windmill on the ridge…. I must admit thinking that we may have blown it; I was trying to play down the situation!
As previously reported, Nick took his Janus C and Al Gillson the Twin 1 from Sleap to Pock for the comp last week. We had reasonable weather with both the Janus and the Twin in wave to 11000 on the first day, and some reasonable cross country conditions on other days. Thanks to the support, flying skills and company of Pauline, Tony, Al and Sal and family, Nick, Nigel, Bill, Paul Whitters and Rob. The Fox family had a great time. Heres to next year!
