Last flight of the day

K21 Returning to the hangar

At the end of a long hot summer day flying the call the Launch Marshall and winch driver are waiting to her is this. “Gransden Lodge, K21 Kilo Foxtrot Yankee, landing long on 04, gear is fixed.” as it means it’s the last flight of the day and the glider will land much further down the run than usual, making returning it to the hangar that much quicker. The lovely bonus is seeing the aircraft flying over the launch point only a couple of hundred feet above.
