Well what a tumultuous two days. Pic and rest of story to follow tomorrow.
Ok update time. Its Friday 17:57 BST and three days ago we flew up to Newcastle University for my Daughters Graduation. She is now another Dr Hyett like my Mother and Father before her. Went IFR up there and VFR back. Although technically the weather coming back was worse than going up. EGTR - EGNT. EGTR had a notamed runway closure to finish at 125:00 UTC so i filed a plan to ensure that it opened on time as there was NO WAY I was missing her graduation due to some pot hole filling!
Left at 16:30 BST and landed 1:30 hours later. Andrew 2 was busy taking pics and videos. So enjoy the country estates he took photos of. Quick Pre-flight check and make sure Husband's headset is all working fine.
Take off on 08 bye bye Elstree see you tomorrow.
Looks like Harvest time in the UK me thinks.
Leeds Bradford Airport as we zipped past at FL100
Dont tell the Russians, but it is up norf somewhere!
17 mile ILS into Newcastle. Looooooooong Final with a 737 up our bum! (this was the last bit!)
A few of the new Doctors!
The before posing photo, Dad, Mother and Daughter.
One SERIOUSLY proud father and a very clever Daughter. (who apparently is still a bit shell shocked about it all!)
Dad 2 or in reality Andrew 2, he as well has had to cope with 5 years of "i cant do this, its all too hard". But She did do it and it wasnt too hard, Andrew and I can now relax (possibly)
Leaving Newcastle in the gloom, it was YUCK
The reason we fly Mooneys, they get to FL070 SO fast!
The Two Andrews flying home, happy and content to See Andrew 1s daughter all grown up. Love the white interior of AL. About 40 miles after this was taken we descended into EGTR which had a 8000 foot cloud base. Andrew 2 not overly happy!
