A cold winters day at St Athan on Freshers Week at UAS, with several inches of snow lying. A new stude was asked to go and turn the windsock off at the end of the day's flying programme, and was duly provided with a key. Before the stude exited the building, he was joined by another, fabulously keen-to-impress bursar student, and both then spend nearly an hour in the snow.
When they returned, we asked what took so long? They had actually been to both windsocks to turn them off, and had dropped the key in the snow on their way back. It took them a while to find it!
