Dick, Rogers F18 is at a strange flying attitude isn't it?

H,

You never missed anything dramatic (not at Wtn, anyway...well, other than Lozzer getting pissed off with his Simjet!)...I caught Roger's F-18 on the last part of a barrel-roll...looks pretty cool, I thought! Must apologise to Ian Shaw for not catching his Flash and posting a pic...maybe throttle back a bit next time Ian, and I'll get it!

Cheers,

Dick

I will probably be at wrtn with the F-104 this coming Saturday for a change, have to display the Sabre at the Open Farms Day at chedders on Sunday.
I think it's a superb pic of the F-18, thats why I couldn't understand what Geoff is alluding to! Wondered if maybe it was in a deadstick dive again.

H did, indeed, go to Wtn today...attached are a couple of pics of his F-104 plus one of Paul Lewis's freshly painted Skymaster MB-339 and another one of big Geoff's Hawk (which he kindly let me fly today...superb model, easy to fly and aerobat and loads of power spare from the AMT (NL) Pegasus!)

Cheers,

Dick

Sorry chaps, it's an absolute *****hole to fly and only an expert with the finely honed skills of someone like Geoff could possibly hope to keep it in the air! Aside from that, it was lovely!!!!

Geoff, call round this pm after you've flown, I should have finished on the bender by then!

Dick

Super day at Wroughton today - not a breath of wind, clear skies and only Geoff White and me there! Geoff flew his new 1/3 scale Extra several times and I put another few on the Velox.

Cheers,

Dick

Another first flight at Wroughton yesterday saw Ian Bailey putting the first 2 flights on his stunning Venom model...built from a Mick Reeves kit (with just a few mods!) and powered by a JetCat P-80, Ian's model has outstanding scale detail. The light was crap at Wtn yesterday but I managed to get a couple of shots off when Ian was landing the Venom and I've included a few detail shots I took at St Athan on a nice sunny day in the next post.

Nice one Ian!

Cheers,

Dick

Mark Littlewood and his girlfriend Stevie (lucky chap!) at Wtn yesterday with Mark's Falcon and new Eurosport, which he and Stevie finished at 0300 the morning! A 90 deg gusting x-wind stopped Mark from testing his Eurosport, but he gave the Falcon a good hammering! Also there were Geoff White (Flash) Rog Kilbey (F-18) Nick Smith (KingCat) and YT (Velox)...not a paint-stirrer in sight...too windy for them!

Cheers,

Dick
