Thought I would share a few pictures from the group flight from Gatwick, which bought in 70 concurrent departures

Looks epic! We'd never have even been able to dream of that many departures a few years ago

Amazing! - once again HUGE thanks to all controllers that controlled for my group flight... I didn't quite expect that many people to join on that one! - I had spoke to some controllers before the group flight to see if they fancied booking with the expectation of about 20 people joining us... defo not 70+ 😛

Next Bank Holiday... 3 weeks away... 100+ deps?😁

      My thanks to Darren Hill on Approach and Dave Etheridge on Tower for their professionalism in getting me safely in to Manchester today.
      Earlier  in the day I departed Alicante on a beautiful clear day inbound to Leeds-Bradford. On my first approach to Leeds, I noticed I had developed flap asymmetry and to make matters worse it was gusting beyond crosswind limits right across RWY 32.
      After holding (for too long)  at LBA pondering options, I determined that a diversion was needed.
      EGCC had runways pointing in the necessary direction 😀 AND was fully staffed! Unfortunately. my first approach to 23R was a go-around due to traffic on the active. Fuel was now very critical and I communicated this to both Approach and Tower who gave me priority for the second approach.
      As it turned out, the landing was uneventful although I think my brakes may need to be inspected at a local Kwikfit outlet.
      Shaking slightly, I took this screenshot as I shut down at Stand 22. On fumes...
      Darren's and Dave's professionalism made the flight on Vatsim such an immersive experience. Many thanks gents.
