The long winding road

I was excited as I arrived at the aerodrome. For a start, I'd looked at the weather beforehand, and it was the first chance for a real flying day so far this year. On top of that, we'd been warned about some large aircraft operations, and it's always fun to see a 787 taking off from Cambridge's modest runway. I wasn't disappointed on either account. (But to make sure you're not disappointed, I'll warn you now that this is a two-parter.)
