EJR was in doing Circuits. I suspect this is the North Taranaki Aero Clubs machine based at Norfolk Road
The Powerco chaps were out checking the lines today. The Chopper was from Wanganui.
Alan was up roaring round after his re permit which Wayne had done this AM.
Alan popped over to The Super Secret Richmond Racing Facility to check out how the WHITE KNIGHT is coming along.....and he forgot to take his his Super hard to get Stratford Sports Flyers Stckers....to apply to his Machine....
Back at the Hangar
Locally based Trojan roaring and rattling round the place.
Then Cliff was busy hard at it as well.
Then bugger just like at Ardmore the Trojan had a Gear issue.
After circling for a bit with multiple gear retractions it finally all stayed down
Bit more flying about to make sure all was good.
A safe landing was made no issue's Whew disaster averted.
So Cliff picked the Trojan up and carried it back to the car.
Ross no doubt thank full a belly landing was averted.
Cliff then wandered out with his Cherokee Fly's real nice as Cherokees do.
