This is a record of my first visit to CAD East

with the group - 29th November 2007


I met up with the group at the Buckley Pines Hotel for breakfast
before setting out for a day at Cad East. The weather forcast was good.

Once there, it was clear that we were going to have a windy day, especially those who opted for the higher locations (I didn't). ITV were also up there with us doing some filming. A couple of F15's went high over us and a couple of Tornados went past in the distance....
