An early start at 9.30 am to see if we could beat the wind paid off. A great calm morning with the wind unbelievably staying fine all day.
Trent turned up with all guns blazing. A nice big shade and half a dozen aircraft to try his hand.
With the low winds Anthony decided it was now or never to get that ugly thing into the air after its repaired tail and electrics.
Looks good and ready to go...
The Take off was sweet and uneventful.
No bad habits this time.
All looks good...
A few circuits and then the engine decided
it was time to quit. We think running lean caused
it to over heat.
That looks like another bloody ugly wilga i seem to remember.
They just don't make fuselages like they used to.
Thats 2 wilgas that could only manage a circuit or two.
Didn't see that limit on the box........
Not to be put off Anthony took out his frustrations on his....... OOH is that a spare aileron i see
Now this Boomerang of yours flew perfectly...... Hmmmmm
Billy made it an early start as well
and had a few great flights of his Cap.
Aren't you glad we graded the extra
width on the main strip....
Billy brought out the big guns. He is doing some training on his warbirds
before he begins crucifying his Mustang.
Keep up the good flying Billy. You are doing well.
Steve getting his Beast the barchie ready for a whipping.
As per usual everyone abandoned steve to fly on his own. We are not game to be up at the same time. Such a great presence in the air.
Its great to watch steve.
Good to see you out and enjoying your
Greg was out with his Gyro-copter thingy. It didn't want to fly last time so
fingers crossed you got it all worked out this time.
Ready to go.........
Looking good on the run up....
It fly's..........At last...
James was out with his ever ready Edge. Flying very nice as usual.
Could be getting close to getting some Jet time.....
It was great to see Jessie back with his blue Sbach.
Getting some assistance from Curtis..
He sure hasn't forgotten how to fly...
Turk and Billy working out the bugs. Turk's PT-19 at the ready.
Turks Flybaby is a graceful machine in the air. With the wind low
i think it may get a fly today.
All eyes are on the Dual ace.
Not sure if it had its maiden or not as i had to leave early.
Bob fueling his Roulette (2) ready for some punishment.
Curtis had his astro hog and extra ready for a good day's flying without the wind.
After last weeks rapid decent on landing leaving Rob's MSX-R with a lame leg it was great to see him back with the aircraft fixed and flying perfectly.
Rob doing a fantastic job
And look all those landing bugs have gone.
What a greaser of a landing Rob.
You got the touch back.
Good to see.
Hold your head high Billy. After i left you were the only one captured with the regulation Flying report in your hand. Well done. (working on clubman of the year are you) Hehehe
Well with the early start of 9.30 being a winner. I think it will be open for business to all
who want to get out early. We may be able to now organise a bbq lunch for future days.
With all the changes around the club at the moment, the perz would like everyone to be aware that we
still have to use a bit of common sense when moving around the field. He will email everyone a copy
of our standing bylaws soon so we can all brush up on them to ensure our safe flying.
See you all next week.
