Busiest day of the year so far! A full car park and most of our fleet out and soaring the ridge through the day.
Highlight was definitely the first appearance of John's brand new LAK 17, appropriately with Whisky Papa on the tail!
John really enjoyed his first flight in it, a lot more than the rigging crew enjoyed putting it together 😉 I'm sure it'll get easier the more we practise.
Good training flights for Rich and Jake and decent, if bumpy, ridge soaring for Andy, Ellen, Colin, Adrian and Bruce.
And we just managed to get the mud washed away, the hangar cram packed and WP back in its box by sunset.
