Sunday the 17th was HOT the air was hot like being in Townsville at the olds in QLD.
The Glider Guiders were out first hard at it.
They in a Circle the wagon formation so a briefing I suspect.
Gary & ONE whizzed in as they do in the AM.
Gary & the Mustang went out for a bit to give it a bit more running. Ended up doing around 4 hours for the weekend not bad.
We here at SD work around each other such as here with the gliders. No drama's. If you arrive here and they out just do normal approach and land this all depends of course if Gliders just landed other wise as above as they will see you.
Mustang outa here. Very distinctive sound it has now.
Joe public out check it out.
One of those Legacy cessna's passing on through.
Check out the heat haze did I mention it was really HOT !!!!!!!
Yup Yup Yup smiles every time he flies it.
Now young Jees comes out when home from WN Uni and usually gets a ride in something.
Said to her wanna go for a ride she said bit hot I said in the Mustang she said the Mustang frigging hell yeah....Funny that seems to be the usual response.
So of her and Gary went.
Mean while dad new Gary & Brian were heading out in SSF to do some Circuit work.
Busy Busy Busy
John and JPX back from somewhere's
Quite funny people still think JPX & SSF are CT4's until you tell them other wise.
Mustang on Approach & Overshoot checking for those Bloody Aussie Plovers.
No hits this year although around 150 buggers about.
John doing the fuel container thing hopefully not for much longer with the New Fuel installation under way.
Gary & RVH heading out for a bit.
The Chaps taking 5 outa the heat.
JAU getting some TLC on the paint side of things.
New Gary done a great job on her and looking pretty slick
Mean while Joe & Nev checking the Quality of Alans washing of RSR
Gary up again
Bugger when people standing there watching ya work.
Gary back from where ever....
Alans been slowly polishing his wing check that Bling man....
Might pay to wear ones shades
Brian offered to take JAU up for a fly show Gary what she looks like in the air superb as usual.
Here trying to remember how to do up Harness.
Miniumum of 4 point Harness should be what all planes have as shoulder belts are crap
Baron Von Knicker Bocker ( Go on dare ya to ask him story there) getting ready to attack the sky
Gary like expectant father Pffft.....
The family walking back to take up viewing positions
Purposeful lookig tacker eh.
Probably under 300 ft
I think he likes it
Approach and overshoot flies so slow has time to tell birds to get out of way.
I reckon Baron Von knicker bocker enjoyed that
I dare say he did two.
The Flag Pole Raising Team hard it. Good for another 50 years.
The Team scoring Alan on his washing Effort on RSR with suitable lubrication I might add.
Brian & Gary look suitably relaxed after JAU's flight in a while.
Still hard at it.
SSF was still hard at it this time with Don on board building up to BFR as DBZ is about ready to aviate.
Thats all folks
