Last Sunset of 2007 at BERG

Sagitta 600 silhouette against the last sunset of 2007 at BERG

Piet and I just before our last flights of 2007
After everyone had gone home Piet and I took advantage of the perfect weather to work the last few thermals of 2007 in the company of the BERG swallows and enjoy the last sunset. While we were flying Martie took some photos.

Good trim and minimum control inputs were essential for good flights and interesting that Piet's heavier Tsotsi outperformed his Gentle Lady in the still air conditions. Piet and I fetched the parachute so many times that when I got home I had enough grass seed in my shoes to start my own grass farm!

Here's wishing the very best for 2008 to all BERG members and blog readers.
