Yesterday found 6 Luscombes and one Piper Cub at Enstone in glorious sunshine, getting stuck into our BBQ! Easy flying and Brug was whistling along in those thermic updrafts, achieving a true 90 knots at 2250rpm.Later, I set off alone to visit the PFA Rally at Henstridge which had seen 180 odd visitors, including 3 Luscombes. OAT peaked at 19'C and England looked stunning from 1300', passing over long cues of traffic below, this is the way to travel!

I landed back at the strip, and smiled at just how smooth the runway is after myself and Martin's efforts! Organising the mowing gear next! Nige.
