We had planned and filed Alderney for several weekends
and now at last the weather looked good enough to go.
G-SE and G-BN were filed for Alderney,
but I wanted to test G-SE's load capability.
So myself, John, Rob and Paul piled in.
We planned to stop for fuel at Shoreham to keep within limits.
Thurrock after take-off
Crossing the Thames towards MAY - Cloudbase 1700ft
Finals 03 Shoreham - Compass works!
Shoreham charges £15 landing fee and they aren't cheap for fuel.
Lydd is a better option as you can buy the fuel VAT free if you are crossing the water.
Climbing out to the West to FL50 - above the Cloud toward CP
It was very quiet on the island
Hardly anyone about
We had a drink by the harbour after lunch
Obviously where all the people had gone!
Once airborne again, Rob and Paul relaxed in the back of SE
Back at Thurrock
And on to 'HQ'
