Hi everyone, this is Vincent and this is my first attempt at posting a message and as you old members may remember it takes a bit of navigating so my apologies if I make a few mistakes or get things wrong. That over with I can now tell you that I purchased G-ARXN on 13th January from Rip Ripley(bad day) plane stuck at Rips Bedford waiting for winds to fall. Rip flew plane up to Fenland for me to fly home, 30kt wind at Fenland to dangerous for my inaugural flight. Fenland very helpful arrange hangarage at short notice for 6 days no let up in wind extended stay 2 more weeks. Bingo wind dropped 6th March got heli lift to Fenland fuelled up checked plane over blew tyres up started 3rd pull taxi out lined up full throttle unstuck at 40kt but took half runway,full all up weight, what an exhilarating experience. On good advice climbed to 2500ft headed North no messing. 60min later overhead North Coates did everything as briefed wind 12kt straight down field 60kts over numbers throttle back hold off bit of power settled gently onto terrafirma. Boy o boy there is no way of telling anyone what it is like to fly your first flight in a strange plane first time in single seat and a tipsy nipper at that. Worry started immediately was it just luck? More worried about next flight tell you how it went in next post. Looking forward to joining you all then all the question start. See you Stay Safe Red Vic -G-ARXN
