I did gliding when I was at school and before I went to sea but apart from a few times flying light aircraft I hadn't touched the controls of a glider for about 50 years until around 2010 a forum member arranged an evenings' flying at Usk Gliding Club.
It was astonishing just how quickly it came back and on the 2nd flight i had control from the top of the winch launch right through landing it.

I remember hearing HoveDan's yell on his first ever glider flight as it went up at about 45 degrees within seconds of leaving the ground

Another odd thing, chatting with the instructor after we had put the aircraft away it turned out that we had both been to the same school, Farnham Grammar, although he was there some years after me.

Something I've fancied doing myself as it's quite an accessable way of taking to the sky - obviously with the appropriate training etc. Did some static lines and free fall in my yoof with the TA then a crash course (not literally wink ) gliding course.

I took this exact approach, reran new cables from an amp in the boot, could also run from the back of the headunit.

I quite liked the incorrect dates, but I can understand how it might cause confusion. I might have one of each again.

After the success of the 2021 calendar the Club is putting together a Club calendar for 2022

We are looking to get an idea of numbers. So who would be interested?

We have been going through the great photos from the monthly photo competitions and we have now selected a number of photos that we think would be a worthy contribution to our 2022 edition calendar.

Again, as last year there will be wall hanging and desktop options available.

Can people please leave a note below what type and the quantity of calendar they require.

The cost will be somewhere between £12 - £18 delivered in the UK, pending on a few final details. We could offer international delivery at a slightly higher cost.

I understand that everything is expensive and the consequences, but I do it myself, I can write my costs pistons are made at our factory, their price cost 25,000 rubles, Russia is about 250 pounds. I ordered the cylinder head gasket in America for 112 dollars .12mm cylinder head bolts were sharpened by himself on a machine made of aviation steel 30hgsa .the block for new pistons was sharpened by myself the rest of the spare parts are not expensive piston rings goetze price 40 pounds approximately

The last time I was in The Mall, Phillip was still alive and we were at one of Her Maj's garden parties, but as Submariner puts it 'it's a mirage a huge glitzy monument to greed and consumerism.....behind which is endemic hypocrisy, corruption, slavery, misogyny, racism the whole shooting match'.

When the oil dries up/not needed one wonders how long it will take to revert to PeteP's memories of the place once again.

So it's like Epcot centre on steroids? Not!

Can you visit when it's dark and thus a little cooler?

And in the UK Pavilion you didn't type in "Fiat" and "Coupe" to see what happened?
