Flight trace (.igc)

13 take-off from Nevers.


Perhaps we should have realised selecting an airfield in the bend of the Loire might give a few weather problems. The morning dawned in thick fog and it took all morning to produce a sky that was vaguely soarable. Conditions did eventually provide the odd 4 knot thermal to 4800'. But generally this was a creeping flight via Joigny, Romilly and Troyes to SÚzanne.

On tow from Nevers in the ASH.
