Sunday 7th March ... my first thermic flight of 2010. There wasn't much wind but there were plenty of thermals allowing me my first trip to cloudbase this year. The views were spectacular along the whole range of mountains from Blencathra in one direction to Skiddaw the other. It was pretty cold up there, especially as in the rush to get up the hill, I'd left my thermal trousers in the car! hence the "very thin" walking trousers you see in the vid. Hope the video gives you an idea what its like flying high above the mountains in this beautiful part of the UK.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
