Nev, was that you I saw skirting around the edges of Birmingham airspace & drifting over my house on Sunday ( Stourbridge).
My wife pointed out some other plane flying over, which I missed but spotted this graceful Atos winding it's way north.

Fantastic to watch you fly over, it was really exciting, the 1st time I've ever seen a hang glider fly over, and to see a rigid was brilliant. So you landed at DK rugby club. I thought you might have gone on further, you seemed pretty much in control of the situation. If I new you were so close I'd have brought you over a beer & given you a lift home.

i had declared a goal at wombourne- 160km as that was as far as i thought possible with the forecast
Of course it was looking really good when i arrrived about 4 and i could have done another perhaps 50km before we got to more airspace
The new football pitches looked a really good place to land , and as i wound in Scott May was doing his best to keep the crowds attention in the field next door with his stunt show....looked a bit tame from my grandstand view.
Invited to a BBQ by the guy from the next field who also went and picked Ben philpott up from the goal about an hour and half later where he had landed.
