I'm v. jealous.

Living within the one bit of the UK that is still locked down is no fun :(
My group owned Jodel dropped in on Saturday (not me in it).

I heard that Oban is aiming for 9th June for normal fuel service.

@mick w & @Miscellaneous Lovely pictures.
I couldn't go on Saturday and my home strip was clagged with the haar on the Sunday so I made the trip on the Monday. Very few aircraft remaining and the air surprisingly turbulent down and up the Great Glen making for a fairly challenging landing. But the rotor off the trees at the eastern end made take off even more challenging and was the scariest I've ever experienced.

I’m going up later this month to do just that. Been a while since I ‘planted’ it there and had meant to get up there last year...

That was me, and I think I got the last 20 L before the dregs at the bottom of the tank!

Great trip to Glenforsa and will be back again.

Threading drifts......But.

I missed a few guys on Sunday because I didn't recognise or know etc. Would feel a right prawn saying does anyone know who I am.... Yea - do yer best fellas !

Met a couple of chaps who I already knew.

So

How about another meet at The Turd for lunch to get a bit of a Flyer meet going ?

I will start it in another thread, but as The Fors was so well attended, worth a mention here.
