Yesterday I went up for a quick flight and did Hour Building: Local flight from RAF Henlow.
The weather conditions were perfect yesterday, still cold air, great visibility and high clouds!
I decided to take this opportunity to do a local flight. The route took me up out of Henlow below the Luton CTA, past Leighton Buzzard (which you can make out in the picture), up past Northampton, across to Alconbury and then back down into Henlow.
It was the same runway in use at Henlow but I am getting more familiar with the procedures etc.
The weather was so still that the plane was happy to just sit where you put it with very little intervention. This allowed me to take in the views a lot more than I normally would and on a day like yesterday they were absolutely breathtaking. It is days like this where you remember how privileged you actually are to be able to fly across this beautiful country of ours.
It has been a while since I have flown from Blackbushe but I have hours left on my account so I need to get down there and burn some hours soon.
In the end another 1.5 hours logged.
