Getting ready to go

Only 36 hours to go before we take off for Tunisia. I spent today at Henstridge helping to get the aeroplane ready. Oil & filter change, a bit of TLC for the right brake (it needed bleeding), and re-fitting the spats which always come off for the winter. At the same time I took the opportunity to clean all of the perspex (with Pledge Natural), chuck out all sorts of rubbish and vacuum the carpets. I even added a bit of carnuba wax polish (to the paintwork, not the carpets!).

The flight back to the strip was pretty quick thanks to a 25kt tailwind and the aeroplane felt good and ready for the trip ahead. I'm glad to say that the weather is also starting to look up, so it'll be VFR to Clermont with a bit of luck.
