Today was a gorgeous day. Perhaps one of the finest of spring so far. An early fog quickly burnt off and left an amazing blue sky. Joshua had his first flying lesson for several months, given the lockdown. We were at the aerodrome by 7:30 and Joshua was in the air shortly afterwards in a new Foxbat.
I took the dogs with me and once Joshua was airborne, the dogs and I went for a walk down the lane next to the aerodrome. The light at that time of the morning was beautiful, filtering through the flowering gums of spring. It was quite tranquil, apart from the occasional aero-engine. The aerodrome stimulates quite strong opinions amongst residents of Tyabb, but I was intrigued to note that nearly every gate I passed had a supportive poster about the aerodrome on it.
There were not many aircraft movements at that time of the morning, but I did get a photograph of a lovely 1947 Cessna 120 as well as some footage of Joshua flying. I had forgotten a few of my techniques for aero-photography though, so the results were not my best.
