Booker Regionals 2017

Wycombe, Royaume-Uni,   15 juillet 2017 – 23 juillet 2017

They're back!

The launch went very efficiently, as did the relights which came back fairly soon afterwards, while those who had managed to stay up called starts. The cloudbase was high and the climbs strong and all but one pilot got back (944 took an aerotow from Enstone). The K21 deserves a special mention for coming in just behind the JS1.

They're back

All but two got back, and the others are accounted for - 944 dropped in at Benson and is getting an aerotow, and LC is in a field near Hampstead Norris so he will be a bit late home.
