A long day at the BMFA Buckminster flying site today, my 1st ever session there.

It's a fantastic flying area with the sun directly to the back of you as you fly. The flight-line was busy, roughly equal numbers of planks and egg whisks, and socially it seemed to work perfectly with nonstop flying as we took it in turns, and some good chat as well.

I'm too tired to waffle on 😃 and I only had about 3 to 4 hours sleep last night, but even so I enjoyed flying a lot and was still able to concentrate pretty good. My only disappointment was my attempt at flipping circuits which I can do on the sim, and a bit at the field, but once flying into wind I couldn't keep it going, kind of not enough power it felt like, but also if the timing was just even slightly out whilst trying it into wind, it ballooned upwards very easily.

There's a funfly there in a few weeks. Will you be there?

More than likely now you've told me about it.

I'll mention it to the CMHC posse in the hope that they'll come out to play :)
