It looks as if we may have the better day again this week.

After clearance of any overnight rain and cloud the sun will shine, and the wind will drop - though still enough to give runway 25 all week. It will though feel a little Chile as it's still January.

I note that flying will not start until 10.00, so giving plenty of time for the en-route collection of various delights.

Hope to see you all on parade as normal.

Looks as if Nottingham Chapter will be AWOL this week, so, as I will be the only internet member present there is no need for a weather forecast - part timers and hangars on know what to do.

But, "hotdog" will be celebrating another birthday on 23rd, so I trust that all 10k FCers (including multiple entries and no longer active) will be sending him a message or at least a pm to make his day.

I am pleased cos I now don't have to cough for the £2.85 birthday sponge, nor do I have to protect it from Tinky's grubby little fingers.

Only 4 of us braved the elements today - saint george of hull, lord ted of norfolk, andy from notts . . . . oh, and a certain captain of which you're all acquainted! ;)

Hope you all got home safely. :)

ps - the fresh cauliflower from lord ted's estate went down a treat! :thumb:

I trust the The Captain was able to unsheath Excalibur, so ensuring even distribution of the still in date chocolate Father Christmas to those deserving of a portion - a small quantity remain in stock for full members only.

Thoughts with you all Viv, trust all OK.

Cloudy, damp day for us in a 20mph southerly wind, gusting to around 35mph in the morning which may delay the start of our days excitement. Should reach 6/7C, although wind chill will make it feel like 3/4C.

Although we won't see any, there will be flakes above 800 metres.

Not forgetting it's still early February, it will be cloudy all day with drizzle in the morning.

Temperatures will struggle to reach 7C in the afternoon, but the south south easterly gusting at >35mph will make it feel a decidedly chillly 2C.

Don't know how many souls will join me, and The Boy George, for our weekly entertainment - Andy is at work, and Tinky came last week with a new boy.

Well, my weather forecast was wrong, got the temperature right but where did the cloud go ? Lovely to see some sun.

Much to our surprise, there were quite a few members present, and also a rare visit from one of our chief part timers - Sean R. Sole and his partner.

Late in the day, perhaps just after The Captain had lifted, I got what was described as The Shot of the Day as I caught Monster 1 & 2 doing a pairs overshoot against the delightful partly cloudy setting sun - sadly you'll all have to wait, as it is in my Minolta hi-matic 7S.

Lovely pic Captain, you seem to be looking 130ish degrees. Mine was looking 230ish degrees, and should be even better then dantheman's, as those Tonkas keep low and mean on climb out.
