"jwoolard is doing well on two counts: he is flying what looks like a TB20, and he has every pilot's wish (a girl) in the RHS"

I'd much rather have a handsome man in my RHS, lol


Some pictures from our trip to Colonsay and Oban last October:

On the climbout from Prestwick

The crosswind wasn't too bad until about 20 feet over the fence, when it suddenly whipped up to >25 knots. This was my first time going around since my PPL - I realised the reaction wasn't as well trained as it should have been:

Arriving back in UK overhead Southampton

Also had lowest ever groundspeed on landing at 48 knots. Strong wind right down the runway!

Two posts in succession is a bit greedy, but I like this one, taken yesterday, flying 'my' beloved Jodel in the French countryside....Saint Foy La Grande (LFDF), near Bergerac. A lovely club in the middle of fields and woodland, with the Dordogne nearby. Watch out for wild boars on the runway!

There's an excellent restaurant at the airfield.
