Almost Aquila

I seem to hold a patent for planning flights when there is bad weather. Today, I had planned a lesson in the KLM Aeroclub Aquila A210, but the weather would not cooperate. Fat too mch wind, some rain (not necessarily a problem), hail, and thunder (definitely a show-stopper). Plus a cloud base that would be too low from time to time...

A pitty! But, there's always next week. We'll just go try again next Wednesday. In the mean time, there's an information evening for the Aquila share tomorrow evening, so I'll go there first, and take it from there. I had hoped to have flown the plane before that, but that just wasn't meant to be.
