That's a nice picture, I would post a video clip but I'm not sure how too. Looks like you had fantastic weather, I had my flight on the 23rd and it was around 27 degrees. It is nice to see so many Spitfires in the air, my dad used to take me to airshows in the 70'S and you didn't see many airworthy examples.

I cheated because I cannot remember the correct way to extract frames from videos so I will have to go back to the manual. I played the video on the computer, then stopped it at the required frame, used Shift/Print Screen and then copied the frame into a photo editor. Someone will be along soon to tell us how to upload video clips to ChitChat. You could try posting yours to YouTube or Facebook.

Yes, we had very good weather on the 25th with the temperature over 30 degrees.

Posting videos: I think the only way is to upload to YouTube or similar and then post a link on here

I did the same last year. As you say, an absolute dream come true. I have my sights set on soloing one by the time I am 50....well if you don't have a goal!

What a fantastic experience. But regarding your caterham feeling a bit lame just remember that low flying is better than no flying and you're at the controls.
