Today seems to be one of these day that you can only see once a year if you're lucky. We're tracking the fleet and it looks like the task might be under-set. Some of them are constantly doing around 180 km/h for long distances. The task is a 4 hours AAT and they can possibly use all the distance available ans still be ahead of time. I think the photo below says it all:
Overdevelopments and thunderstorms were predicted but it looks like it's not going to happen. The sky is full of picture perfect Cu's instead. We will see tonight.
I am still out of action and probably will stay this way for weeks to come. I cannot even drive so we're trying to arrange our retrieve back to Horsham. There will be help flying in from Horsham on Sunday to fly and drive us all back home. It's good to have friends.
Here are some photos from yesterday's arrivals and landings:

In the meanwhile today on the grid:

We are expecting first arrivals in an hour or so. Beer is already chilling in the fridge.
