    North Pole Take 2

    Hello Everybody
    As you were all aware last year i had to make the hard decision to abandon my North Pole trip due to a broken bone in my hand and terrible weather.
    Its now 2016 and i have all the necessary permissions granted again and fuel organised to be flown onto the icecap from Russia.
    So North Pole Take 2.
    i have been sat at Rufforth today trying to get away, but Fog has stopped play.
    so hopefully tomorrow.
    there will be a daily blog again ( started today ) and my Tracker is live again to follow my progress.

    www.polarflight.co.uk

    Regards Dave

    Hello,
    sorry for not keeping updated, as you will probably have noticed tracker not moved yet.
    The weather in the uk has been foggy with the high pressure Over the last week, I have been watching the weather every hour on the hour, where I am heading the weather has been pants.
    so I would not have got any further than I did last year. ( Northern Germany )
    I decided that instead of sitting at an airfield in another country paying hotels I would wait here in the uk
    Aircraft all loaded and flight plan filed, should be away first thing in the morning

    Looks like Dave is on his way, however I think he might have forgot to change his Transponder hex code..... it is showing as G-CDVO

    Hello
    A slight delay, the 1 and only fuse holder I did not change in my rewire.
    It failed so after 3 hours of searching found the problem.
    Alex no haven't forgot to change hex code.
