    Was the hole left on the runway? 🙂

      Good question! No, the villagers were ready to fill it in and add more stones to the area to help stop any other aircraft getting stuck (although personally I just won’t use that section again).

    Ha ha, great story. I do really love reading this blog!! Especially when the weather is so poor here, I can’t do much flying myself. It kind of makes me feel that I’m keeping my hand in if that makes sense? Even considering joining Facebook just to get the updates ha ha!!

    Safe flying dude.

      Mate so do I, although it seems we are stuck in winter here, with light snow forecast again for this coming Monday. I’ve only managed four hours in the air this year which is ridiculous! I’m missing it like mad I can tell you.
