    York to Scotland ????

    July 11th, 2016

    After getting over a dozen wounded and injured servicemen and women into the air at York we discover the weather looks bad for York tomorrow so we decide to make the move to Scotland. It is a rough flight with strong winds. After an hour and a half it is still rough and raining occasionally so we land at Eshott (It is an exciting landing!!) and decide to stay rather than chance the weather again. The ground crew soon catch up with us.
