Default UK Retro Fly in 2011

Though you guys might like to see some of the action from last weekends first National UK Retro fly in @ Sleap Airfield, Shropshire.

Brain child of Paul Bardoe of PB Models the event was organised to showcase models from the 60's, 70's and 80's.

With a tipical UK waether forcast PB couldnt have wished for the turn out we got with over 100 models counted on the flightline. Hopfully the event will become a yearly fixture on the UK program.

Anyway please enjoy the pics and vids.

Err... and that's me in the royal blue fleece in the background of the second picture about to start the "works" Senior Telemaster. It was a bit too windy for it really but I coped alright. Check out the windsock.

I'll have something more aerobatic next year.
