The 2nd unknown was a tough one. It turns out that it wasn't possible to keep it in the box. Everyone had at least one out. It was a sequence of damage limitation and deciding where was the least costly place to go out. Some of the big names got greedy and ended up with 3 and 4 outs. I managed only ...

Day 11 Thurs 7th Aug Not much to report today. Only 10 or so pilots flew the 2nd unknown. Weather then stopped play. And unusual weather too! Imagine not a cloud below 8000ft agl and having to stop flying. Here, they grow their CBs differently. Bases can be often 8000ft and tops well into the strato...

I finished my unknown flight 5 hours ago. I had decided against taking a break as only about 1/3rd of the pilots did so and they didn’t seem to make up the scores elsewhere. Also the density altitude didn’t get over 3900 ft so it wasn’t as bad as forecast. I started the spin at 3800ft and I kept lin...

Day 9 Tuesday 5th Aug There were 2 groups of 12 pilots left to fly the Free programme today. I was selected to fly the first slot of the last group as pilot no 25. In other words the 13th flight of the day. You have to park your aircraft on the 25th starter spot as designated by chalk marks on the g...

The Q programme has been completed and I finished 5th out of 36. This means that I will fly in the 3rd grouping of pilots for the Free. The results of the Q are important as they dictate the order of flight for the following programme. It is essential to get in the top 3rd and get to fly in the last...

The judging position is in a cut field of lord knows how many acres, the ground being dry/dusty sod ..... so within a few minutes ones shoes / legs are covered in a layer of opaque dingy pale brown stuff. Dust devils come around once in a while, one during an early flight dancing right through the j...
