We didn't have it all our way however as Terry had arranged a series of challenges consisting of grass that was missing, along with piles of pallets that threatened to destroy any aircraft that wandered off its landing course!
We had a good turn out of members & many aircraft made it into the air over the day.
James brought out the 'Old Girl'.
I brought along the Saratoga & the Stuka whilst Paul brought out the mighty Bulldog.
Curtis' hangar with the all important esky!
Also pictured is Michael getting some help from James to sort out his Katana & welcome back to Stu who brought out his Zephyr for a blast.
Brendon put on a show with his Tiger Sports by taking off with his ailerons reversed which led to some amazing 3D moves followed by his best ever landing!
He also had his PC-21 with him that James put through her paces after Paul sorted the engine issues.
Pilots box with obstacle course in the background!
Waiting in the start-up area - James' Edge 540.
Only one mishap which I think Anthony actually wanted to happen so he could buy a new one!
Dennis & Bob both flew a number of electric foamies whilst Paul flew the wings off that big Pitts!
Thanks to James & Paul who coached me through my first solo take-off with the Stuka & also helping to sort out the flap/elevator settings.
The last landing with full flaps was beautiful to watch!
Here's a couple of snaps from a video of a low pass with James at the controls.
The bar was opened late & because of the excellent conditions the last of us didn't leave until after 6pm.
See you next week.
