Another late evening freezing flight and 2 close circuits to finish

Great flying conditions.. cold .. but clear .. and some moody clouds thrown in …

Problem at the threshold just before take off … finally full and free movement check and spotted a loose inspection disc over my head … quick call to tower .. shut down at the hold .. unstrap .. lift out of seat .. slide panel back into position and restart .. 60 seconds … ready to go …

Thanks for the photo Sarah
So .. at 07:41 in this video … I look up and see a slightly loose inspection panel ….about 30 seconds later – call ATC and inform shutdown .. to push into place … then restart 60 seconds later
A figure of 8 in the sky for Clair M

Finish off the oil before landing …

2 final circuits – close Bad weather – nice to fish – with feet and hands like blocks of ice !
Close left base 26 into the setting sun
