Saturday past I was joined by John Pearson and Andrew wallace for a special trip to fly on the cliffs on Rathlin Island.
What a totally amazing trip it turned out to be.
A big thanks to my brothers in arms and to Jone from the RSPB.

A few weeks back George, Chris,Donald, Billy, John and myself headed to the Scottish Model Airshow, unfortunately it turned out a very very cold wet windy day and only a few models flew in the morning.
We booked on a early boat and headed back home wet, tired yet happy. The craic was good even though we saw very little flying.

PLANES AND TRAINS AT MOUNT STEWART
ON
SUNDAY 8 MAY 2011

The second Area Scale Judging will be held at Mount Stewart, the National Trust property on the Portaferry Road from Newtownards, on Sunday 8 May, starting at 11.30 am.
This is the first time this has been held on Sunday, and it should be an excellent venue for us to show off our models, including all types as well as Scale. The NT have invited a Railway Club to join in, so there will be many new faces along if the North Down Model Railway exhibition is a guide. There will be a marquee on the lawn, which will be available to us, but which will inevitable cramp the space for the Flying Display. We run this every hour from 1.00pm to 4.00pm, 20 minutes each time, alternating Control Line and Radio Control Aerobatics.

COME AND JOIN US – THIS WILL BE A GREAT DAY OUT
