Walls of fog

Our chairman Andy sent some photos from one of the few flights we managed on Sunday 19th January in VMC before walls of fog took up position at either end of our airfield and prevented further launching.

The regional pressure setting rose to 1047hpa towards the end of the day. Our aircraft altimeters can only set QNH up to 1050hpa on their subscales. The highest ever recorded sea level pressure in the UK was 1054.7millibars in 1902.
