Well yesterdays blog was all about getting airborne so today I’d thought I’d finish off the experience ………
So there me and Steve were up high in this amazing wonderful world of the sky, looking down at the familiar yet unfamiliar looking world below. He spent the whole time chatting and telling me what we could see.
We managed to get above a bubble of air which allowed us to go round and round in circles gaining height by 300 feet per minute. He’d warned me on the ground that many people felt immediately sick when circling but as long as you kept your head still following the glider, it was fine, but he did keep asking …..just in case😂
I managed to get one of an aeroplane flying way below us
And I spotted the road that I usually trundle along on a bus on my way to York!
But the views of the golden-yellow rape fields were my favourite
The views below were just mesmerising….there was an amazing house hidden in the wood below and they wouldn’t have a clue that we were silently flying over them….
It was a shame it was so hazy as usually you can see as far as the Pennines on one side and the Humber on the other but it didn’t matter, it was still amazing……
Finally it was time to head back, and soon the runway was back in site with everyone waiting for me by the control bus…..
The landing was amazingly smooth and the whole experience surpassed my expectation. Steve even got them to pull the glider back by tractor so I wouldn’t have to walk back across the airfield …..and what better way to celebrate than with a cuppa…..a wonderful ending to a wonderful day…..😊
On the way out what did I spy but a poster for ……wing walking…😂😂🤔
