Wet field

Went to the field in the forlorn hope of someone being there.. not to be.

FIELD SECURITY .... The gate padlock issue seems to have been resolved with 'farmers' twine' !! This is now the only security & whoever has done the job has been to …

both days normaly the same but maybe saturday if your not in a rush as you will see lots of chaos in the off the peg flying after hours and night flying when it gose dark

I'm thinking Saturday. The weather looks slightly better according to xcweather, although there is a chance of showers on both days.

Just got a text from SWMBO. apparently she "may have got a bit carried away with buying stuff for a picnic tomorrow". Who knows what delights she has bought, so if anyone sees me at Welshpool tomorrow, and fancies some of our picnic, I'm pretty sure we are going to have enough to go around!

Just back, cracking weekend.

Arrived Friday night to really heavy rain, managed to get the tent up without to much water in it. Weather cleared about 8pm so I grabed to flightes in with the extra. Rain came in again (and settled in for the night)so we hit the beer tent.

Saturday we awoke to blasing sunsine (which lasted pretty much all day) and we got to enjoy what is a supurb site for flying. Huge tarmac runway no real obsticals to deal with and picture perfect welsh hills in the distance.

The full size guys were being abit arsey and delayed the start for an our or so but we did enjoy lots of touch and go curcits from some real nice light aircraft and a super Turbo prop Islander.

Once underway it became aparent that the pilot turn out wasnt Weston Park in numbers and more like a big flyin so out the window went the slots and a white bored was put up, Simply slap your name down in the next availible and go fly (this worked really well and flying was non stop)

So to my flying, I got myself in slot 3 with the extra 2 mins in the bloody canopy blew off (first time thats happened) and wiped out the rudder, got it down nice and steady right in the middle of the runway.

My next flight was with Paul Bardoe`s Cresent Bullet (you may remember me flying this at our field last year for a few months) flight was going really well untill my low inverted pass was a tad to low!, surfice to sat the rudder and fin post are now abit shorter, other than that just a broken canpoy and lots of ammo for P`taking for the rest of the weekend.

Sunday was much the same had one down pour during a pretty good days weather.

Model of the show for me was Graham "rolling" Roscoes World Models 50cc Cesna with electric power and Braincube lights. His evening display (about 9.30 and getting pretty dark) was awsome. Other star's of course the Bishops with there Hawk Duo and being abit biast the Funfighters, never fail to amuse me.

Nice to see club members Andy Sayle, Brian Jones and Pete Squire making the trip to.

Im knackered and sunburnt again, but small as it may have been I will be back.

Saturday was a nice day out Ithought. We got there at about half eleven, and had a bit of a picnic with the little 'un beforoe wandering over to the flightline. Luckily we got there just in the nick of time to see a nice shiny blue crecent bullet doing a really low inverted pass. So low, even the runway tried to duck (and failed). Jackie asked me "if it was all part of the show?" I said "nope, and you'll never guess who was flying that model?". Well, blow me down, if she didn't say "Mark"?

She then went on to enquire as to whether he got paid to crash models because "he does it rather a lot doesn't he?".

Seriously though, for a first ever show, I was impressed. Loads of informal flying going on, the Bishops two hawks display was probably my highlight (after the Barnes inverted low pass of course), as well as the twin Twister (full size) display too.

What also surprised me, was the amount of trade stalls there, considering it was a first ever show. There was even a rather random fireplace stand there....

I'll definitely be going next year Smile

Andy

Ah, but to put a more serious note on it - if you fly as much, and as "adventurously" as Mark, then you are going to crash more.
I remember my dear old Dad rebuking my Mums comments many years back, ( when my job involved driving pretty much all over the UK ) when she was "scolding" me for having "another" speeding ticket.
"He drives approx 45000 miles a year, compared to the average of 10000, do the maths woman! "
She couldn't of course - played truant too much I believe Sad .
