This one must have had some spectacular views


I bet they did - how'd you satisfy the glide clear requirements though :scratch:

If you meant G-CSBM, the pilot has posted her route on the UK GA Facebook group.

So the views were spectacular - while I'm confident glide clear was fine for the majority of the route, I admit it is questionable for the segment through the Heathrow class D. I had been expecting an Ascot-Burnham clearance, but was offered the route I took, I realised once there it was questionable, but by the point that realisation set in, it was safest to continue - if offered again I would refuse it. Ultimately one of the classic cases of not thinking things through in advance and not having the time / mental capacity to think it through during the flight.
