Time: 17:00 - 18:55
Aircraft: Ikarus C42 - G-CDVI
One day, I want to go up to Hinton in the Hedges airfield, to visit some friends who live nearby. No time for that today, but I decide to fly over Princes Risborough, which is on the way. It is also where my sin-laws live (sin-laws rather than in-laws, because we are not married and hence live in sin).
I haven't really bin in this direction before, so it is something new. Up past Hannington Mast and then past Brimpton (OK, I have done that bit before). Then past Whittles (which I failed to see) and on towards Booker, but deviate north before getting there, toward Risborough.
The view of the town is quite clear and as you approach, you can see the strange bit of railway that appears to split in two and then rejoin. I fly of over towards Salisbury Close and orbit their house (now legal, with the new law change), then clear off to the north. Followed with a loop around and then another pass, before making my way back to Popham.
Ray (father sin-law) saw me pass overhead, and somehow knew it was me - spooky huh - just like my brother does, when I go over the Island.
