Dec 18th – Thunderstorms end day.. again

I managed to put my back out yesterday helping John Bally derig his gliders. So Ed flew without me and John took the rear seat for a change. They had a good flight, though they were dodging showers on the escarpment, but there were also good climbs to compensate. We had a big thunderstorm just to the North of Kiripotib, it’s still flashing and rumbling as I type this, so they cut short their flight a bit and posted just under a 1000k.


Ed and John taking off from 08, the only time I haven’t been in the glider since the glider arrived in Namibia



  1. Hmmm, you have my very real sympathy Rob….take it easy!
