Troutbeck Club Trip

20th September 2019, 33 photos.

EOSM club flyout to Troutbeck in the Lake District, blessed by beautiful smooth flying conditions, continuous sunshine and occasional tailwinds. Why can't they all be like that?

Searching for holes in the cloud towards Langholm


The dreamy Lakes hove into view


Is that sheep on the runway or runway markers? It's sheep, we'd better land deep!


Kim always chuffed to be anywhere near the Lake District


George arrives


Happy fliers ready for the pub


The trike gazes out on the sunset over Blencathra


Early morning and mist lies over the bottom of the runway


Graeme, George and their trikes lie asleep


It was a very dewy morning


Long shadows ahead of our early morning Lakes tour


Dizzy view onto Doddick Fell route up Blencathra


Looking upwards to the Hall's Fell route up Blencathra


Heading over Braithwaite and into the Coledale horseshoe


Causey Pike and many more


Buzzing Haystacks


The Coledale Valley




Buttermere, Haystacks and Skafell Pike




Flying into the Langdale Valley alongside Graeme


Campers on top of the magnificant Helvellyn


Buzzing Helvellyn with Swirral and Striding Edges


Dramtic morning shadows on Swirral Edge


George takes a seat in row A to watch the new arrivals


Gordon and Jill arrive


Eddie keeps it steady


Sarah swings it round the trees


Tony birls in


How many pilots does it take to plan the route home?
