So I was Amy Johnson for the day, well an hour, and it was exhilarating and terrifying in equal measure as I had the opportunity to fly in a de Havilland Tiger Moth, a 1930s bi-plane.
Finishing the 1930's look off with the flying helmet and goggles, I climbed into the front seat via the specially marked route up the wing, treading carefully so I didn't put my foot through the wing.
There was a short delay before we set off, whilst the ground crew and pilot finished their checks and the ground crew helped start the propeller. According to Wikipedia, because the Tiger Moth has no electrical system, it must be started by hand.
Took part in a "mini" Insane Terrain running obstacle course in Histon as part of their feast week celebrations. As well as running the course, climbing under and over the obstacles, I cycled the 7 miles there and back from my home village to take part.
Thinking about signing up for their longer 5k obstacle running course in Doddington in Cambs, in which I'd expect to come LAST but it looks awesome. Anyone else up for it?
