High Hopes in the French Alps

Careering into Rubbish Weather!

The rain in Spain falls mainly in the Alps!!

Well it certainly seems so…. I’m hacked off with this weather to be honest! –  We had some great weather for our clients, (which is great!) but, this week we had some time off, to hopefully do some of our own flying, but nothing doing!!

It’s been rain, rain, wind, blah de blah… crap weather! and there’s nowhere really within a decent days drive that would have been worth it. Apparently, the weather is set to improve tomorrow, but these post-pre fronts, have been quite messy, and not particularly pleasant, we seem to be trapped between fronts at the moment, which does not make for pleasant air. We may however get out to fly tomorrow, but will have to see… meanwhile, we’ve been working on the garden instead, with new plantings, etc.

Anyway, all that said, it was good to bump into Natalie, on launch a couple of weeks back, and she took a couple of pictures of me, flying my newly acquired Gin Carrera, xs which I am still taking time to tune in to, so would have really appreciated these few days. It was just a late in the day flight, after work, and I was the only one on launch. I quite like it when it’s like that… Alex was still flying, but we never got to see him.

Hope you had a good flight Alex, I’m sure it was the right thing to be over here and not in Annecy on that day!

Thanks again, Natalie for the great pics!


It’s such a good shot, I had to put it up as a ‘large’ size, but you can click on the pick for a close up of the glider!
