Feeling somewhat like the prodigal son, I flew into Ronaldsway from Caernarfon as I saw John's email about doing a test run this afternoon. Apart from the wind making things interesting for my little spam can, (25knots gusting 37!) it went entirely without incident. Because of the conditions I made a flapless approach at 90 knots, plus or minus 15, and the wind obligingly gusted 37 just as I was ready to touch down. Radio was 100%, clear and un-distorted. It is so nice to be back in action with my second favourite flying group! <g> Peter Yes I was supposed to be working - but it was a chance not to miss.
