UK Regional / Re: The South East Flyers Thread Part 3

A perfect session this morning at Thurnham. A warm 10 mph south westerly gave me the 'flying fix' I needed.  :)
I could only stay until noon as I had to meet up with my wife for a paddle in the sea and some lunch. ::)
It was a shame no one else was there to enjoy the excellent conditions with me, just one dog walker and one mountain biker in the distance were the only people in evidence, maybe other fliers attended in the afternoon.

What I really hate both in roadworks and "congestion" is the information boards and gantry's displaying 50 mph and everything is virtually stationary.  I spent almost six hours in such traffic on Friday on the A1M, M25, and the Dartford Xing. Just got back to proper Mway speeds when, approaching Clacket Lane services, a "Traffic Officer" vehicle pulled of the hard shoulder, put all his lights on and started weaving across all lanes Displaying a  DO NOT PASS sign and brought the traffic to a halt 'cos some utter T*t has run out of fuel about 3/4 mile before the services. One of the ossifers came and spoke to people in the first few cars in the Que to say they were hooking said t*ts vehicle up to tow him:- , he returned about 10mins later and said once we start towing you will be free to pass and to go as quick as you like! - I took him at his word   :ev and am expecting the speeding fine in a day or two.

OTOH I did the return journey this morning leaving at 6:30 am and did not see any speed restrictions except for a short stretch on the a14/M11 area. Took halt the time inc a stop for a bacon buttie and coffee.

. The dead areas, don't forget concrete needs a day or two to harden enough for traffic hence no people around.
Hadn't thought of that - but surely the concrete doesn't care what speed passing traffic is doing?

Not over here, Audi and Golf drivers are the same, cap the wrong way around and the driver sitting in the back set. :D
I thought it was just their brain sitting on the back seat.
Getting back to cones on the motorway, I spent time working on motorway maintenance and new work some years back and the speed of some vehicles both commercial and cars was truly amazing; trucks at 70MPH really do suck you in towards them and it was not unusual to find 50m. of cones missing on return to work or on rare occasions the vehicle damaged and abandoned in the work area and in some cases theft of equipment from a coned off area, some one risking life and limb for second hand tools. The dead areas, don't forget concrete needs a day or two to harden enough for traffic hence no people around.

The BMFA are saying that they have been assured by the CAA that something will be issued before the 30th. In light of the diagram and words in CAP1687, I want to see the exemption before I break out the good scotch.

Additional work is underway with UK aeromodelling associations to permit certain ‘model aircraft’ operations to continue above 400 ft when being flown within an appropriate club or association environment.

As far as I am aware, we are still waiting for an announcement on the subject of 400 foot rule exemption.

Can they issue an exemption before the new laws come into force, or will the exemption have be issued on or after the 30th.
