Grim weather and take off work

Just over a month ago much of the talk is spain was about how to get water to Catalunya because of their drought. Now they are in floods! We managed to salvage one flight yesterday, but Avila as the rest of Spain and much of Europe continues with showery weather.

The work at take off progresses. Yesterday they had finished smoothing the principal take off area. No rocks or bushes to snag lines anymore. They have begun to cover the surface with small sizes gravel. Negotiations continue for the large bottom landing site.

The poster for the events in Avila was printed yesterday, using one of Mark Haymand photos from last years British Open with an image of Avila from the air. I include the picture here….not to be confused with skies we are getting at the moment.
