The most bizarre clouds ever

Our team had a spectacular early morning flight in Wales. But the most exciting and overwhelming were the clouds of peculiar round shape, looking like extra terrestial formation. One of the best flights ever.

Flight of the year so far

Had an absolutely stunning cross country flight tonight.
