We've only got a short Task A available today. The snifter is up. We await a window....
Loggers will be available for collection in Control until 9.30. After that they will be taken to the briefing hangar.
Slightly different today.
Regionals at the front of the grid. Grid before briefing, north end. Briefing at 10.00.
We have all three and what sounds like a mini-gaggle of finishers just coming in now.
(DNS = did not start)
Unfortunately a rather large example of the 'you may come across a shower today' showers has drifted by to the south of Aston Down, rather rudely slamming the weather window shut in the face of most of the Regionals pilots as it did so. They're currently drinking tea and gnashing teeth in the clubhouse.
It's just started raining here now, so please don't go thinking we're enjoying lazing around in the sunshine whilst the comp pilots are busy racing round in stonking conditions - it simply isn't that sort of a competition. If you're at work, you're probably still in the best place.
