Soaring......Flying!!!



Today we went to Milton Keynes, we took Beth to Airkix, the indoor free fall complex. She had asked for a lesson for her birthday. We collected Laura and headed up the M1, Just to make things interesting, Stella (our trusty Sat Nav) decided that that she would take her time waking up. We drove around 5 miles before she bucked her ideas up!
We collected Laura and arrived in plenty of time. We had never been to this complex before, its massive surrounded by car parks and a huge shopping centre. All the car parks were showing full, so we were really lucky to spot a space close to where we wanted to go.
We went in and found that there was also an indoor real snow ski place. There were loads and loads of people on skis, snowboards and toboggans, there was a lounge overlooking the hill with a big fire and comfy sofas, it felt really christmassy.
We went down to the free fall place and Beth signed in, there were online forms and Beth had her finger prints taken (not really sure what that was about)We stopped for a coffee and then went for the preparation talk.
Beth got changed into her gear and we went up stairs for lift off. She was excited and frightened at the same time. We all sat in the viewing gallery and she took her turn. She was full of smiles when she had her go. We paid for a DVD so that she could remember her day out.


We managed to get some shots of her in action, but I have copied this one from the site for the time being!!
