After writing so much about flying, it was time to actually take to the skies. I spent a very happy hour at the controls of a sweet little Cessna Skyhawk called G-LOOC. Although I was fairly hopeless, it was simply wonderful to be in the air with the controls in my hands. The forecast predicted rain, but the weather held back and afforded beautiful views of the English Channel and South Downs.
If time and money allowed, I’d be back up again tomorrow. As time and money do not allow, I have occupied myself with a sketch of this dandy aircraft.
