The Team at work (Mandy, Dave and Geoff following our leader) – Nearly finished product (Photos courtesy of Anup)
Our Charperson, Terry M was busy cutting the grass at the club with his electric lawn mower. Mandy, Dave and Geoff were his helpers.
The strip now looks really good. Well done Terry.
The day was beautiful for flying. Geoff stayed up to 1:30 but I stayed on for another hour. No other soul to be seen. Much later Peter W came but did not fly.
I managed to fly on Thursday …. the weather was even better. Flew my Spitty and Mentor and thoroughly enjoyed flying. And then on Friday…. heavy snow !!!

One notable thing about the Macchi MC 72 is that it was effectively twin engine. Two V12’s one behind the other with contra rotating props. It eventually achieved a speed 100mph faster than the S6B. See following if you are interested —
A great new Sim on the market. Saw this at Weston Park last year and bought it. Aimed mainly at the Heli Flyers, it does feature fixed wing models. It features the ability to change aspects of the model that affect flying qualities e.g. engine, C.G. etc. no doubt about it, this is a good Simulator being marketed as ‘next generation’ – and I believe it is.
Including the votes from committee members we have had nineteen in favour of the proposal, one against and one abstention. This is a straight majority across the club and so the Committee will formally decide whether to take it forward.
Great Vid JJ – super flying Colin.
What is the music?
.. seen at the field on Jan 18th following the first fall of snow. Well done Glyn – bet you’ve been waiting all year to test those skis
