Friday 28 Aug, Day 4 has launched
Day 4 started launching at 11.12 after gridding up before the 10.00 briefing. Bill Young had given his usual met brief of south westerly winds, good cloudbase, decent lift, random showers etc. In fact he only seems to have one met brief. Sometimes it looks as if he uses bits of the day before’s and he claims to have forgotten to change the date. Task setter Andy Melville has sent them to Thirsk, Malton, Humber Bridge, Gainsborough and Newark.
It’s been pointed out that we’d never get anywhere without the tugs and their pilots so here’s a picture of Bob Kirbitson in the Pawnee waiting for his next customer this morning.Not sure what's behind him but there's obviously something in the mirror that's grabbed his attention.
