VFR into IMC, my SCARIEST flight. Diversion to Cardiff
- Published on Jun 8, 2016
- Scariest experience of my flying career so far, unexpected VFR into IMC. As i turned crosswind the fog and cloud rolled in. Massive thanks to the fantastic radar controller who helped me and kept me safe. Spoke to the controller on the return leg. I would recommend the Instrument rating either restricted or full, would have been a massive help here. Should be starting the IRR in the next few weeks. This is a lucky escape, could have been worse. Fortunately Cardiff is very close as Bristol was overcast at 400ft. No chance of getting back into Bristol. Nice 3 hours spent in the cafe. I apologise for the swearing but decided to leave this video un edited as you capture the full effect of the situation. You can watch the return leg in beautiful vfr conditions in the following video in the next couple of days once I've managed to upload it.
