Thursday 30th July turned out not to bad WX wise.
Nathan & HMO Hughes 369E from PHL had been dealing to some Thistles out East.
Heading for Kaponga for some more Squirt.
Mmmm some one don't know how to drive. It would appear they had trouble using the turn around.
Considering the Fuel Truck and Trailer (A Train) used to turn around in here no prob's. Ah well good help is hard to find. Spose better take me Rake down and smooth it out.
Nice if people could fix what they stuff up....
Alan & WRG were at it again it would appear he has a serious infection of Aviation.
That would be Capt Warner in Command.
Don was out waiting for his Engine to arrive.
Mark arrived back from Ferting things about the place.
Check out that flock of lil Buggers to the rear seem to be a heap around this year.
Dammit it's a CAMIT
Mainly due to this
Oh nasty. On investigation no damage could be seen. Mainly due to the Slopping Sump.
Now if you don't know what a CAMIT is sit back grab a cup of Char and I will enlighten you.
Yes it looks like a Jabiru 120hp but there the similarities end. CAMIT makes the Jabiru engines for Jabiru.
Now CAMIT has decided to produce the engines under the own name of CAMIT with all the improvements they have wanted to do but weren't able to under the Jabiru Banner so if you want a much improved 120hp (6 cyl) or 85hp (4 cyl) engine get a CAMIT.
We had a couple Massey Tadpoles doing touch and goe's
RVH getting sum Rays
Alan back from somewhere's
Team Warner looking pretty darn happy with there spot in the day.
Heading for the big OE after a last look around the patch.. Have a hoot now.

Getting a bit crowded on the Back Track.

Using not much at all
Some shots of the Flying Machines at rest.
Having just given the Club planes TVG & SSF a wipe over looking rather blingy.
Oh shiney makes all the difference when getting Mud off. Amazing what a bit of Silvero will do.
