A beautiful Saturday morning in the fall, with high winds and heavy rain coming tomorrow. We are back to our regular pattern of calm surface and a faster jet at 200-250 feet, out of the south today.

Bob was off first and far off NW by the time I got off. We dropped low over the adjacent pond for a while. Then climbed to clear the local home and dropped off the north end of the runway to play low and slow. Climb to clear the homes again and drop into the soccer fields to again play low and slow.

Finally staying up in the faster winds to head for Littleton, I-495 and RT2. Bob had crossed 495 into the industrial buildings south of RT2. I was further east and crossed RT2 to land at the Littleton train station. David was last and had followed Bob's track to the industrial buildings west of 495.
