Hi Uther - what a coincidence - I looked at this thread yesterday to wonder if it had been updated. Glad to hear you are okay. Please post some pictures of lovely Mifflin.
I had a nice flight out of Camden last weekend in what looked like marginal conditions, but which turned out to be quite flyable once I got up there. Club's ASK-21 flown solo (I am still working on the requirements to convert to the Junior single seater) for 1 hour and 8 minutes. I only had to come down because there was another guy wanting to fly it.
Three to 4 knot thermals with some going to 5-6. Visibility not that good (bit hazy) so grateful for the Flarm.The airstrip from a bit under 3,000 feet. It was hazy day.
Trying to be the cool and collected pilot
But actually feeling like this!
The Flarm going off - for those who may not have heard of this, it's a device that detects and warns you of other gliders and aircraft that are also fitted with Flarms. It's telling me there's a glider at my 11 o'clock and a bit higher than me. And no, I couldn't see it either.
I'm buying a much better compact camera to post some better shots and some videos in future and retiring my old 3 megapixel Nikon. My logger's battery ran out too, so I couldn't get a Google Earth trace...
