Back to nature

Thanks to IQ for the pics

I dropped in to see a friend today. He's recently moved his aeroplane to a new strip and got permission for me to fly in. Although the field is quite wide, the strip is quite narrow - it's shared with livestock who are segregated from the metal birds by electric fences. Getting in and out of the strip by car or on foot involves a fair bit of taking down and putting up of electric fences and opening and closing farm gates.

My friend was there with his camera which pretty much guarantees a dodgy arrival and landing; I didn't disappoint.

I flew back in later to collect my wallet which I had managed to leave behind, and I'm not happy to say that my second landing was worse than my first. Hmmm...
