A few hardy souls travelled up to the field to day only to find 4" of the white stuff already there - some of us just could not drive up past the gate while others made the journey with ease. Once we all arrived we were greeted by some magical blue sky's and picture postcard views. John F , Fred and Olly took to the air and entertained us all with some great takeoffs, touch and go's and classy flying - all with some suitable and generally un-helpfull banter and heckling from the rest of us - all of this was captured by Andy and Fred for posterity and hopefully the footage will appear late in a Club DVD for all to enjoy.
Well thankfully the reasonable weather has continued and we have had a good turn out of flyers since Xmas - here are a few shots from yesterday to enjoy - not sure what the lads are pointing at - maybe Santa on his return ????? The light was very poor hence the quality of the photos - which are courtesy of Fred.
Well the day of reckoning has finally arrived and Liam having mustered up his courage the test flight was about to take place.
Liam taxied the plane to the end of the runway and with the light breeze whistling through his beard , he took the stance, tightened his belt and announced - lets do it!!!
His beautiful creation took to the air and Liam flew it with complete authority , it looked great. The landing was as smooth as silk and the test flight was captured for posterity by our very own Fred - this flight and many more will , I am sure, appear on the Club video at the end of the year - so make sure you get one!!
