15 October 2016 - Shots of the Swale and 6 November 2016 Sloppy Crosswind Landing

Hadn't flown for 3 weeks so needed to get up and blow the cobwebs off. I did plot a nav exercise for myself through some little airfields but the visibility wasn't great so stuck local and just took some shots of the Swale instead. Very calm conditions.

From November 6th 2016 a local flight and sloppy cross wind landing...

Local flight down to Canterbury and Folkestone. An uneventful Sunday bimble, or so I thought. This clip is the landing on runway 34 in a mild crosswind (290/10 Kts). After a little float,  I left the right rudder a bit too late (and perhaps should have kept the left aileron up as well). I got away with it but a reminder none the less to keep it much tighter next time! I should have done  better.
