8.33 radios, infringements, thanks, and more on non-gliding air cadets
This pheasant hopped onto my engine cowling after landing late one winter evening at Elmsett airfield. He was unimpressed that I had landed at what he clearly regarded as his airstrip and would I please push off! Good mag as ever after forty years of reading Pilot.
Aha! Just landed I see! WTF are you doing on my airfield? Were you invited? Do you have Prior Permission from Pheasant Control? Have you submitted a General Aviation Report? Does HMRC know about your arrival? Did you get clearance from Eurocontrol in Brussels? Do you have any illegal immigrants on board? This is just not good enough, you know. By the way I’ll drop all charges if you have a bucket of wheat for me. Roger Bell, by email
