Monday 11th was rather windy around 20 knots all day although warm.
Now I don't know about you but I suggest wayne should have a chat with the last person who flew SSF.
Must have been hell of a Landing.
Well it was Rudder off time for some new Bushings as SSF is coming up to a 1000 hours so preventitive maitenance is the go although they were still in pretty good nick considering her Trainer duties.
Yes she looks very shiney as she has had her Monthly polish.
If I am flying I like my planes to look good.
The EM team were feeling adventerous and decided to attack the wind. Although big model day as the foamys would have got Trashed.
Mike had his Polish ( Looks like a Daiotel well the wing certainly does) out and itr handled the wind not to bad although an angled landing was required.
On the Taxi for RWY-34
Quite a pretty lil looking machine
Into a grey blue sky
Doing the loop thing just going over the top
The angled landing as it was pretty darn persistant
Whoa there fella.
The chaps going through the pre-flight
Must be all go.
Our local Harvard on the Taxi
Looking pretty darned determined
In for a landing did get a boot up the rear end coming over the Tank trap. Just ahead of threshold RWY-34.
The EM team getting ready for High Tea in the shelter of the Glider Hangar.
Then Dave from Beck Helicopters passed on by on Power line inspection duties.
The council of war solving the worlds problems although said they not telling.
Heading out with Alan & RSR as the wind had dropped.

Looking at Stratford from the North -West yes it was hazy be the result of the Aussie Bush fires.
