Now Saturday the 4th July (Yankee Doodle) was not the best although better than what they said on that great Aviation WX site TV-ONE news.
Saw Gary & EEF heading back to his place just before 10am I think it was.
Anyhoo down at the Aerodrome Hayden turned up to go Aviate a bit and Aviate he did although Low Level Circuits were the order of the day. Good training as gets one used to doing it and also the conditions which were super smooth ideal.
here's a Montage of Hayden going round in ever decreasing circles.
Still a bit damp hence the Rooster tails coming off the Landing gear.
Mean while Gary was trying to sort out why his Cowls had come off like that. Whilst they were doing that gave her a nice wipe down and then whacked them back on again and given a firm STAY command.
Hayden in the meantime was still going round the patch.
Bit whispy in places but nothing to write home about. If ya learn here ya learn in all kinds of weather makes a more rounded Pilot overall.
Looks pretty pleased about it all and rightly so all looked good to me.
After giving his Cowls a stern talking to Gary & RVH headed out for a blat.
Like at school look both ways before moving off.
Gary using RWY-27 Magpie using RWY-16
That Blue Grey paint on RVH is a Bugger with a background like that.
YUP , YUP ,YUP
Checking out the Dirt the Lads from Downers had placed in a couple of the Bigger Ruts.
Yes Gary can fix ya Shorts.....
New Alan & STA were about as well heading down to Hawera for a bit.
White also being a bugger in these conditions.
Mean while the Ercoupe saying bugger of all nice and dry in here.
That's all for Sat.
