Flying to Blackpool airport

My luck was in.  A flying instructor friend had a few hours instructing to burn off in order to complete an instructors’ revalidation.  So he offered to right hand seat me flying to Blackpool as P.U.T. Pilot Under Training – and all I had to pay was the landing fee.  Had to give up dinner at mother-in-law’s but then sometimes you have to do these things.

 

Flying to Aberdyfi

To Aberdyfi with Hâf today – 20 knot headwind in an aerial 2CV.  However, the return flight, via a 180 deg about, turned us into a Lamborghini.  Well, a Vauxhall Corsa anyway.  And there’s Keri waving my windsock from in front of our house.

Post Gwyn

We had the entire Berwyn mountain range to ourselves yesterday. Bread-knife winds and shot-blasting sleet as we tussock stomped the last mile of wilderness to claim the range’s loneliest sentinel – Post Gwyn.

The Berwyn Mountains from the air.

The Berwyn Mountains from 4,500 ft this afternoon. They were lit like some coral cathedral and I was just drawn there.
