Half time score: Flying 1 - Cars 2

It's not been a good week for aviation. Saturday involved a trip to Goodwood for a meeting, but thanks to some early fog that never actually cleared all day, I ended up driving. Sunday, I went to the end-of-season display at Duxford and very good it was too. The trouble is, I drove to that too. Flying to Duxford would have been good, but that option is no longer open (at least not for the autumn event). Fowlmere is an option, but given the amount of traffic snarling up the roads after the show, using a taxi to get back to the aeroplane would be challenging.

Today, I needed to be in Farnborough. It would have been nice to land there, but alas that's not possible without more than one engine and a very fat wallet. As neither description applies to me, I flew into Blackbushe instead and got a lift.

The score should probably be Flying 1/2 - Cars 2 1/2
