Gye dreich in Glasgow, but normal for the time of year. May is usually a glorious month for warm, even hot, sunny weather while you're studying for and sitting exams; come the end of the exams diet, come the rotten weather.

Ay any rate, not many either broadcasting on EC or with transponder on! :wink:

You can’t go anywhere without being spotted :roll: :lol:. There was some pretty lively flying today. I was the only aircraft at Sandown (they were busier than Heathrow during the week), and Dan had his work cutout trying to keep his marquee from departing to the mainland. I then had a slog down to Hartland Point in Devon but a 190+ knot dash back from there to the Bushe. Some heavy cells on the aircraft’s weather radar and a few paints on the storm scopes. I should have been in Monaco, of course, this weekend !

It wasn't particularly difficult. I looked to see if as earlier in the week the southern skies were full of SEPs. On seeing 3 I looked at them all and low and behold you were heading west from Sandown. I looked again a bit later and thought it's either blowin a hoolie down there too, or that's one hell of a slippy new paint job you've had done. :D

Good to see you were out flying anyway. I'm sure it was more entertaining than sitting in the stands at Monaco staring at an empty pit lane and garages. :wink:

I recall a while ago watching a YT video and as the camera panned to the iPad during flight your aeroplane was showing on SD. :D

I think that I might have seen the same video. With ADSB-out, there’s no hiding, and it’s quite a distinctive reg. Hope to see you guys flying again soon, although the weather in Scotland seems to have returned to its normal non-lockdown state :lol:.
