Bugger of a day to fly to YWGT for a coffee…

I decided to fly to Border Aerospace Fabrications at Wangaratta Aerodrome to see my friends Roland and Paul. They are extremely busy working on all types of aircraft, however I timed it well for afternoon tea. I was watching weather all day and the rain showers were coming through in patches. I decided that it was time that I just jumped into the cockpit and got some air under my bum. So off I went and as I tracked towards Wangaratta I could see the showers moving in. They were only light so I wasn’t too worried. It would just be a plane wash if I flew through them anyway. Arriving at Wangaratta I found myself landing on runway 36 with a 17kt crosswind. Again this didn’t worry me as the QuikR can handle it in its stride. It was great to spend time with the boys at BAF and listen to the stories they have to tell about the aircraft they have to work on. It came time to head home so I climbed back into the cockpit of my trusty QuikR and taxied out to runway 36. The flight home was spent flying around the rain clouds and watching the big line of rain moving towards me. I watched the rain getting closer and closer to the aerodrome. I made it back and I was in the hangar before the rain came down. A great day and another great flight in a QuikR.
