I might just have to drop in soon and collect him? Bit of a trek there though and would have to get over those big hills!

However, we're not encouraging visitors to Broadmeadow yet due to the soggy runway, so someone might beat me to it.

dave nixon
11-03-14, 17:13 PM

Will do, it may take me a few goes as the Mistral can float a bit if I don't get the speed spot on.

Better be quick or I'm going to pop over there and bring it back - and then you'll be down to 200 metres. ;-)

200metres would be a no no for me I might if the runway is open at both ends try a touch and go.....

Dave, If you're overhead Paul's, that's not mountain flying!



He lives in a valley :-)

My strip is open at each end (although one end is a chainsaw induced gap) with good approaches, and within sight of the mansion houses that now live at your old stomping ground, the Stardust Club.

In many ways, it is easier than Dave's strip, although it is still pretty challenging - even for a t & g.

dave nixon

The Stardust club ?,use to go to Stardens newent,if the fog goes away will stop in after lunch

Dave,


You may wish to check your route planning again?


Leaving Malvern and heading direct to Usk puts you on a course towards the Severn Estuary.


I'm pretty confident that the Severn Estuary would not be considered to be mountain flying? (Unless you're Sam and Rick, who did a mountain course with Deepak at sea level?)


Can I suggest that you take off from home, climb to 3000 feet, then just fly West. When the ground comes up
to meet you, you will have found the mountains and are now in the right place. You will however be unlikely to spot Paul (unless he's out on his bike).

Snowdon was aim calling in on Paul on way back,but fog is here till lunch,so that has shafted that,it's three and half hour flight inc Paul's will see.

Unfortunately, Steve, before the ground comes up to meet him, he will pass straight through the SAS danger area at Hereford, so if they are conducting exercises there, they may just use him for target practice. At least if he heads my way he'll get a cup of tea and a few chocolate digestives. ;-)

dave nixon
12-03-14, 11:18 AM
Yep Snowdon will have to wait,don't want t rush over and straight back the fog will drop down again by 430
