Question - what does the crew do whenever they return back due to bad weather... Wait it out? Go to a hotel if overnighting?

Another latté in Cloud9 perhaps :)

Failing that I've heard of an hotel overnight or an Easyjet back to base, to try again another time.

It was lashing here when G-GLAB departed but perhaps the destination forecast was better, if he could have reached it.

Picked this up on the radio and couldn't believe he said PA22. Perhaps Sir Smudge could assist.

1725 - SCRABO61 - (PA22) - towards Hillsborough.

Ah good catch, he sometimes goes up in PA22 EI-EZX.  I'll check the webcam...

Update: Webcam still malfunctional but has been confirmed as 'ZX.  Cheers, I'll add it to the list!
