What happened to Thursday 27 Aug, Day 3?
We were off the air yesterday, being in the air, but more of that later. On Day 3 at least a dozen gliders completed task E. BBB won the day again amongst the wooden ships and came seventh overall, leading comp director John Norman to suggest that there would be an inspection of the glider for hidden engines. 94 won the day overall and Bob Bromwich stepped forward, hesitated, getting a round of applause before he got into his stride with his analysis of the day, promptly lost his place in the script and went straight to the adverts for varios, causing John Norman to scratch his head (his own head, not Bob’s).
Not everyone had such a good day. Here is what is probably known as a “selfie” in the modern vernacular. It was a lovely day to visit the Yorkshire Wolds and above the rolling countryside you can see a typical sky that we experience all through the summer here making those Two-Seater Comp tasks such a joy.
