Gliding in the Chilterns

Admiring the Chiltern Hills and villages from a glider ; practising a few turns along with a few local buzzards and red kites (helpful chaps for showing us around the thermals). Thanks to Jim and the guys at Booker Gliding Club for a great afternoon getting a new perspective on the landscape – as my instructor said …”now for some civilised flying” !

    Just one letter away from Christopher Reeve. A rather good pilot who also flew from our Club on occasion. RIP…
