Cross wind landings. I'm not going to tell you how as it really depends on your aeroplane. When I collected my first Bulldog from Prestwick in 1973 (or was it 72?), I asked what the crosswind limit...

Oban Notam & website still saying no fuel: Both AVGAS 100LL and Jet A1 are unavailable at Oban Airport until further notice. Maybe that tanker was for a private aircraft.

There is a good chance it was someone on board. So that person(s) may be found. That said, though the cost of the interception and escort is high, it would have been good practice for the crews,...
