Why's the share for sale?
Why's the bank got so much money in it? Reluctance to spend it?

Netherthorpe - shortest licensed runway in the U.K. and only an hour or so in a 152.

Popham Runway 26, Lundy, St Mary’s if your going touring. Clacton?

apparently Skegness is a bit of a handful.

I flew our club robin today and tried to "think" about what I was doing (It's become second nature as been flying DR400's for 5 years).

What A and C said - the Robin is a pussycat on the ground if it's been set up properly. Yours hasn't.

Probably make it there as long as you don't have 13 PAX and the hold full of bullion.
