Another nice day's flying! { Thats 3 days this year} Popped into Chilbolten to pick up paperwork regarding annual then onto the Wyllie valley near Warminster for the Inspectors final signing off- that strip is interesting as the down slope is about the same gradient as the luscombes glide angle! So took a 10 knot tailwind along with 15 knots across landing uphill, which made it quite interesting really. Blue skies and Skylarks were chirping, roll on summer! Brug humming well. Never flew above 5oo'!
