    It's a shame that the release didn't release, reading that sheep's mind where the f**k did that come from.

    Contrary to belief nobody ever wants to see a crash, let alone you crashing.

    Well that was fun! Some spectacular carnage, some cracking gliders on display, and even a bit of lift about. I managed a 20 minute flight with an F5d pylon racer!

    Here's a few pictures from the Search and Rescue Multirotor, which was called out on an emergency early on in the day:

    Spot the wreckage:



    Spot the glider:

    Here's another couple from the proper camera this time. All taken by the Barnes:

    Will's Decathlon on Approach:


    Alan's Yellow thing


    Some cracking landing skills on display from one of the visitors Smile


    This could have been interesting!


    And another of the visiting tugs, rather grunty this one.
