Glider pilots from across the UK and beyond descended upon Pocklington last week as the Wolds Gliding Club held the National Two-Seater Gliding Competition.

The event at Wolds Gliding Club is effectively the UK’s only two-seater gliding competition, and it has been running at the airfield for over 20 years.

Flying almost 11,000 kilometres between them, 29 gliders took to the skies during the competition which drew to an end on Sunday.
