Not the greatest weekend's flying ever. With a howling crosswind, no flying on Saturday, but work was done on the LS7 and Motor Falke. Sunday was better, with a strong wind straight down the strip.  Robert and Iain flew to Norfolk in the Eurofox to bring the Jabiru home after repairs, so Jim got the winch out and dusted it down for a day's winch launching. Geoff Palmer, re-joining after a year away from flying, and Ken Buckingham, both re-soloed in the K21. The LS7 was rigged and annual maintenance work on it completed; a new radio was installed in the Acro; and Bruce's new acquisition, a Cirrus, made its first appearance and maiden flight at Easterton.
