Burn Wave 29/09/12
by Alastair Mackenzie
Not the highest wave flight ever made from Burn but possibly one of the most spectacular sunsets ever. Contacted wave at 5000ft just NE of Ferrybridge. Climbed rapidly at first - going up at 4 to 6kts to about 7500ft - then worked my way north reaching 12500ft overhead Church Fenton. Once back below cloud I realised I could capture the reflection of the sunset in the flooding on the River Aire between Eggborough and Ferrybridge.
