Saliente Fly Fiesta

The weekend of June 23rd saw the Saliente fly site alive with local and visiting pilots from Almanzora, Purchena, Lorca, Murcia and even Malaga. Over 15 pilots came to fly and thanks to a change in the wind on Saturdayafternoon- flew above the Santuario watched by a fifty strong audience. Acro-ing, (acrobatic flying for those who dont know) thermalling and landing in front of the church all thrilled the crowds! Even Ramon was seen to smile and Steve and Antonio looked quite pleased (relieved) too! Thanks to all the pilots, DJ Bumble for the flying tunes, raffle queen Sam and Trish for minding the stall!

Gracias a Paul Fellowes para las fotos

Gecko's oldest and probably fittest passenger so far!

Geoff gets briefed for his first paragliding flight at age 72.
He joins the exclusive club of Dolly spotters during a lovely 45 minute flight along the Sierra de las Estancias.

After all that excitement he wants to take up para-motoring and his wife Val is booked in for Monday!
