Something in the Air

Then the guy working on the radio tells me that it’s not an easy repair. Double bugger. I decide to give him an hour, then book for the following morning. Fifteen minutes later, whilst chatting to a visiting English microlighter, a voice is heard, Ça marche!

And a short while after that, ‘A’ checks complete, I’m hammering the circuit before bimbling out over the French countryside.

Bloody wonderful!
