Harriers over Aston Down

A formation of four Harriers flew over Aston Down at 500' today during a tour of all the airfields that the Harrier has been associated with. We're not sure why they came to Aston Down but perhaps it was when the Central Flying School use AD as a diversion airfield and for touch and gos in the 70s.

A wintry view from the winch

Brrrr ... it was bitter outside. But in the winch the driver was as snug as a bug in a rug!

Students (the young looking ones) listen open mouthed as Eugene (the old geezer) waxes lyrical about the joys of soaring flight!

This satellite picture shows the UK when the gliding conditions are very good (near perfect) (taken on the 31st of August). A few 500km tasks were flown from Aston Down going as far east as Newmarket and as far north as Gainsborough. Note the cumulus cloud following the high pressure system centered on the UK.
