I attached a wee camera to my unicorn wing for fun !!!
Spring is here ! Time to show off what Billy Latewood, George Irwin and Bill Hutchinson spent their winter months building and modifying.
Billy L is flying his lovely 100″ 26cc powered Piper Cub, Goerge is flying his new 180 powered Tucanno STUNNING !!!! and Bill H is flying his modified Lancaster Bomber.
We had a disappointing fly-in on Saturday due to the bad weather.
Todays weather was so beautiful, and pilots in the field reflected the weather.
Some new planes flew and some old favourites aswell. George was flying his turbine Boomerang and Chris flew his baby boom ! Billy had his new Extra out and Carol was on the buddy lead teaching young Adam with their new EPP trainer. Trevor had out for the first time his baby Limbo, very nice it was too. All in all a great days . view HERE
Club member John was out at the field flying his electric wing when pop went the battery . Not pop as in explode but as in dislodged its self from the wing. We searched the long grass but to no avail. The Flightpower battery was well and truly lost. This brought back memories of the time Harry Reid and myself had a mid air over a field at Eskragh Lough. Poor Harry also lost his battery, sorry Harry! Anyway good old John never gave up and returned last night with a friend and a metal detector, though and behold after 10minutes the battery pack was back in the wing and John resumed his flight even though it was 2 days later. While searching John recovered 6 glow plug! some engine parts! a few pits of exhausts! nuts! bolts! and push rod connectors. Our field has some hidden treasures , I wonder who all the bits belong too !
Moral of the story is attach your battery properly or befriend some one with a metal detector !
Spring is in the air at Millars field , and pilots are enjoying the good weather .
A few good pictures of new planes and off course the synchro flying pilots.
