3 counties in 3 hours

Recommended Posts

Hi to all

Had a great flight this morning taking off east of Oxford and flying into Buckinghamshire before flying over the county line into Berkshire. :D

Wind on takeoff was easterly about 7-8mph with fairly low cloudbase to start off at 1000ft asl.

Heading east towards the Bucks chiltern hills and headed towards Henley on Thames before flying to Reading.

After flying over Terrys house (not in again) headed back to Oxfordshire via Bledlow and Princess Risborough.

Nice steady flight with a few thermals triggering as the sun slowly brock through the at times very overcast sky.

Pictures of todays flight in my album :)

Hi Dan

Yes it was quite lumpy, as the sun kept popping through the clouds long enough to warm the ground and kick off thermals too. :D

This kind of flying i do not mind, it was just the low cloudbase at times was the problem, popping in the ears to keep below the clouds.
