Old friend

I needed to go flying today. The C182 still has no interior, and although there was a slim chance of it being ready by the end of today (yes, Justin works on Sundays sometimes!) it wasn't looking likely.

The solution presented itself in the guise of this little AA-5. It's been a few years since I flew an AA-5, in fact I'm pretty sure that it would have been in 1994 or perhaps 1995 when I did a cross-Channel checkout in one, but it's a basic enough aeroplane that handles remarkably well for what many would consider a 'spam can'.

I can't remember any vices, and certainly didn't discover any today on a flight that took us down to the South Coast and for a look at the Cerne Abbas Giant.
