Brass Monkey Saturday 25-11-17

Flippin' heck it was cold today. Despite the spectacular wind chill from the fresh north-westerly, we had a good day's flying for the time of year. Our one-day course visitors Peter and Simon had a fun day in the DG 500, with yours truly. And yes, by the end of the day they both managed to remember what CBSIFTCBE stands for. Mike Weston and Simon Lucas were kept busy flying ATC cadets and UWE students in the K21 and K13 respectively. We had an enforced break at mid-day for a royal flight out of Kemble and an impressive rain shower around mid-afternoon, but otherwise managed a good launch rate. We are indebted to Adrain Giles and Richard Burgoyne for driving the winch.
