Here's some pic's from last Sunday when the Stratford Scrammble occured as the WX cleared and everyone was up.
Also a Pic of the New Hangar (1) doors. Look good don't ya think. Doors by Don (TIG) Law great job he did and thanks Gray M for the donation of the Corrogated Iron Cladding and all the good looking but extremley modest band of helpers who helped assemble and erect them which was no mean task I can tell you. The lil suckers gave us bit of a fight but huge improvement on the old doors which have now been recycled into my fire. Bit like a Barn Raising it was.
Also Shawn and Glynn trying to pull start the 701 it was that cold. This year been different as been so cold the planes have not wanted to start and Jump and a bit of Start Ya Bastard seems the order of the day. Feilding guys had same problem when we were down there as well so not just us. Mind you being at 1000 feet as Stratford is don't help and the Carb Icing is a constant reminder to be vigilint. Other than that all good.
