Flying Sunday 14 August 2011

The day started late as we had to assemble at Gawler to rig (ugggh) the MotorFalke. Derek and Claudia flew the Falke up to Stonefield whilst the rest of us did it the old fashioned way. The day was basically circuits with both the Pukatek and Kookaburra flying. A large CuNimb covered most of the western sky blotting out the sun but the weather was pleasant and a whole lot of training was done. Michael Conway did get flight of the day (11 min) in MI in the middle of the day. Regius got to fly lots of circuits in the Falke and most of us had a satisfying BBQ at the end of the day.

We tried out the new traces Derek had made using air pressure tubing – very nice.
