The first round of the NIAA Aerobatics took place on Sunday 26th April at the wonderful Ballymoney Model Flying Club. The morning started early for my dad and I, we set of at 7.30am along with David Nolan, as we drove up the M2 it started to brighten up and looked better further north. We picked up a lost Dutch man on the way so had ourselves a convey, breaker breaker rubber duck and all that, arriving on site at 9am. A good few people were there already and the marquee was up and our lunch was being prepared.

The rest of the story is on AerobatcisNI.

B52 wing sections

 Hi folks, well the B52 is coming along nicely I have cut out the wing panels, which will break down into three sections for transport.  The wing cord is the classic Clarke Y section with a taper to the tip of the wing, also with a little wash out at the trailing edge of the wing tip.  The next step, will be to strengthen the wings with wooden wing spars and design the wing panel joining system. 
I will post a few photos when this task is finished, well thats it for now!

Happy Landings.

A quick post, to bring you all up to date with the progress of the B52 build. The fuselage and the tail feathers have now been cut out; next step will be to glass the whole structure.  The photo gives an idea of the size, with my daughter Hannah giving scale to the model.
I will be starting to cut the wings next week, so I will post a few pics , when completed. Happy Landings
