I was riding 100 miles on the Dartmoor Classic. Last 20 into a chunky headwind. Kept looking up over the peaks to see someone flying. I'd rather have been

Nice to see a few posts on barcs as well.

It's like a Sloper but slower.
The Dawn chorus woke me at 3:45am so it's on charge. And in about three hours from now I'm going to cycle 15 miles to Wittenham Clumps -a tiny pimple of a hill. See the savage slope in the pic.



Once there I shall throw the plane into the predicted 9mph winds. And then cycle back. Trust me, this is a lot more fun than the last 48 hrs in the studio. Or indeed Thursday and Friday which will be spent working on boats for Henley. And the weekend will be spent dragged off the Cornbury Festival to see the Faces, Ray Davies, Straits, Simply Red and others. My tastes are a bit edgier than that.

So yes, today I am going to throw a slow plane off a small hill in no wind and I'll love every minute of it.

Well your weekend sounds far more enticing than you know. I've got yet another weekend of demolition of my back yard in readiness for construction a self contained 2 bedroom Granny flat . But on the bright side My workshop will get an extra 50 square metres of floor space as well .Still would prefer to be throwing something of a hill though.

Well that was chilled fun. Right, cook some chili and then make some t-tail linkages and bend some torque rods. And then play some Aunt Sally at the Spreadeagle.

As you know Phil all my planes are white, so they will be black stripes on the underside.

Black Stripes it is then - had to google them
not sure about their downtempo doom metal though
might suit a Vampire flyer?
