Photos from our trip to Bristol Gliding club 8th July 2005

A great evening, Thanks to Andy our chairman who arranged this and cooked the food. Several of us took advantage of the discounted aero  tows, Dave Payne went up twice. Mike the web flew his indoor model helicopter, I flew my Park Flier and Steve flew his electric glider. We had a tour of Roger's workshop where repairs were being carried out on gliders and powered aircraft.
