Devon and Somerset Gliding Club member Karen King enjoyed the lovely calm Sunday weather in between two storms to relive the experience of flying solo in a glider, writes Jill Harmer.

Karen joined the gliding club after visiting North Hill on one of the Open Weekends that are held on a regular basis.

She learned to fly a glider in Oxfordshire and last flew solo in 1999.
