Bermuda Triangle in the Irish Sea

Last night, I set up a flight from Newcastle to Dublin.
Everything was going clockwork.
I was at 10,000 foot, enjoying the views of the Isle of man (slowly passing me on my starboard).
54km from Dublin, I set a steady descent.
300ft per minute, 170 knots.
What could go wrong?
I ran downstairs to grab a beer.
Came back up, no more than 30 seconds later.
The plane is on the surface of the sea.
Propellers still spinning.
■■■ happened?

Hmmmm. There is something weird going on. True story. On Sunday I was flying from Blackpool to Belfast when a stiff headwind and driving rain started. My Cesna 172 kept stalling so I had to turn back. The visibility was so poor I made 3 attempts at landing back in Blackpool. Unable to see anything I crashed. More proof of the Irish sea Bermuda triangle.

It pains me to do low flying around the rock.

Never drink anything carbonated while making a decent, it greatly reduces your lift. Either shots or wine…:laughing::flushed::laughing:
