Well, what a February. Cracking month but too short. It always seems that it is a week short but of course it isn’t, just isn’t long enough. Now we’re into Hopping Hare Muddy March. The weather has been kind and we have managed to get a fair amount
done including some early morning flying. We did have a crack at midday take off but it was just a tad gusty with the upper wind stationary. Never mind, made up for it by having a great flight across the village the following morning and waving to all those poor people on their way to work stuck in traffic. Great sport that. We even managed to land on our friendly Bierton farmer making it three times in the past month or two. Excellent. The HS2 archaeological mob swept across the back fields digging trenches and finding nothing… [more …]

Welcome to Fablon February. This is the way to do it. Got stuff done as it came in and suddenly we have News for this edition. Smashing. What is smashing is the number of kind notes welcoming us back! Thank you. Well, back we are and this time around we have been doing stuff despite the temperature changes, mind you, although we did get a couple of flights in the trusty ’56 first week in January, I did manage to go to, and then miss, The Icicle. We have had a great dollup of snow and, as I type this, more is falling. [more …]

Welcome 01.01.2019

Well it’s with a fair mixture of embarrassment and joy that I wish you all a very Happy New Year and a Jolly January, trusting that you enjoyed a loud, raucous, hectic, peaceful Christmas, depending. We had all of those especially when the tree fell down revealing two small people one of which declared, “It wasn’t just me you know!”. It is a disgraceful eight months since we last posted up stuff however the ‘Pages’ bit has been kept updated, unless I missed something. So a very belated  huge thankyou to all our friends who kept us employed last year and to all of you that have continued to visit the site. This year things will head back to the old style of nonsense and we’ll endeavour to try and stay more current. As for 2018’s flying we could have done more[ more…]

Welcome 04.03.2018

Greetings from what was a very seasonal Bucks. Well that was February then. It came and went and got wet, windy, cold and generally February. There were a couple of slots for the odd flight but to be honest, with the ground being so wet it was more by luck than judgement. Actually we have been busier than we thought but did finally decide it was cold enough to knock it on the head middle of last week. If this is your first visit then we are still mainly a Continuing Airworthiness Organisation mending and looking after hot air balloons but we do much more. Hours are still Wednesday to Friday but if its urgent email us. [ more…]
