Short video from today.

Mum was having problems locating the end of the runway =)) that's what all that was about at the start if anyone's interested =))

We didn't stop for the return as we decided to go for ice cream at Blyton :)) which was far more important =)) =))

Nice one Helen. We couldn't make it to RHA yesterday. Were there many there?
Isn't Blyton ice cream fabulous? :D

To be honest I've seen it busier, but there were still a lot of cars down that lane (although I couldn't see the main road).
We were there early to catch Thomson and flybe arrive and there a few cars up the lane when we got there but not as many as have been in the past, there have been times where there's no room to park.

:)) I love their ice cream :D \:D/
My only issue is there are too many flavours ~x( =)) =)) I spend ten minutes deciding on something new and then I still end up with Black Cherry anyway :)) everytime :))

Long take off run was probably due to being airbourne for 3 hours... Big fuel load so higher take off speed required and and a heavier aircraft to get moving.
