One to watch - I took off from 09 once with a Southerly wind, which I'm sure must have been causing a downdraught(ft?) due to the high ground to the SE, as my climb performance was about half of what I normally get. The ground was wet too, which slowed the takeoff roll - thankfully no incident, but many lessons learned that day!
