Mine too, what sticks in my memory was the bloke climbing into the fuselage behind the seats who upon me asking replied he was checking for woodworm, I still don't know if he was joking

P.S. THIS was about 1979 though, so I guess it was pretty tired old airframe by then, it certainly didnt stay up very long, I think a circuit as most people know one was about the the things limit of endurance in still air off a Landie winch launch
