Apache!

I was on the bike again this week and I was determined to go flying after not going last week.

The flying wing is in the rucksack.

I shouldn’t have bothered though, as I never got the flying wing out of the bag to assemble it. By the time I got there it was really windy with a very cold north westerly blowing despite the sunny conditions. I gave it until 10:30 and nobody else turned up, so I just went home.

The one unusual thing to happen was two Apache helicopters flying over and heading off towards London. They both followed the same flight path a few minutes apart and were visible for quite some time as they circled around and negotiated their route through the London airspace.

I’m off to do some blade balancing on the autogyro. That would give the Apaches an unusual view if they ever flew overhead again.
