Having been asked if I would show the Sherwood at the Jersey Air Display I thought it would be good to have a pre practice in the general display area
The display team have advised that there is a general practice day the day before ! But as I am a newbie I thought it wise to at least get some orientation in advance
Called up Jersey ATC on a lovely clear Sunday morning and asked for two circuits and then a possibility to run at 700′ between Elizabeth Castle and the Grand Hotel – pseudo display line
The chap queried it but the ATC team granted it straight away – so helpful !
This was also post the first 25 hour oil change on the engine .. kept 100 oil in for now …
The footage below shows some of the tight turns simulating keeping well within any crowd lines and the like
The beauty is the Sherwood turns on a sixpence
