I got back into the air again yesterday evening. A 2 hour drive around a jammed M25 gave me a 3 minute flight from a winch-tow at Green Dragons. It was worth it though - the air was so smooth, when I released the tow the glider just sat there pointing into wind, I felt almost as if I was in a balloon, looking down at an awesome view of London with the clustered towers of Docklands and the City pushing up through the distant haze. I flew back down the field for a nice landing near launch, but shortly afterwards Andy called a halt because it was getting dark. Shame, but safety comes first I suppose....
