The Bicester Regionals 2006

Saturday 12th August 2006

8:00am It's noticably cooler this morning, cloudy and a bit like yesterday morning.. With only two days to go, the competition for the EW microRecorder and the champagne may look settled, but it just takes one landout to change things dramatically, as some pilots discovered yesterday. Let's hope the weather is fair enough to prevent luck entering into it, after all the skillful flying we've seen this week.
