1st Flight

The day after G-EJBI had landed in Norfolk it was deemed time to go and fly her. Andrew had read the flight manual, had flown with the previous owner and had completed a tail wheel course. I was not much help, all I kept saying was the ATA pilots in the last war only had the pilots notes to teach them a new type. We were airborne just after 2pm and back on the ground at 3.45pm. The flight was pretty uneventful, Andrew did a great job, the roll out on landing was a bit too interesting. We learnt quite a bit about the tail wheel lock, namely that it didn’t work on our aircraft and it would be very useful if it did.
