Video: Diversion aversion

Dodging a moderate rain shower when you’re flying is usually no big deal. ┬áBut when the shower is parked right on your route, and there’s restricted airspace to your left, right and below you, and controlled airspace above you, things can get a little tricky. ┬áThis was the scenario faced during my return flight from Gloucestershire to Biggin Hill.

Jon and Alastair fly from Biggin Hill to Gloucestershire in India Zulu for brunch, and end up diverting around showers and discovering an unexpected guest on board.
