Monday 10th April was Hot and Sunny.
The lads from Inframax were already sealing round the Pumps when I arrived.
Mean over on RWY-34 the EM team were getting some aviating under way being Doug & Cliff.
Doug' s Piper Cub getting a fly about.
Nice flight probably time for cup of Tea.
One of the Lads on his break wandered over to check the Cub out.
Mean while the sealing continues a pace.
Mean while overhead one of Matt's machines passed overhead.
Ross had his Extra out and had more than a couple of flights.
Now the fine chip going down to finish the whole thing off.
The Extra at rest.
Ditto for Doug's Cub.
Mountain getting some Sun.
Doug's other Machine...note the whirly thing has gone AWOL.
Some of Ross's Fleet.
Oh nice Sun shot of the Extra.
Cliff's machine doing the inverted thing.
Ross had the Rascal out for bit.
Mike was out for a bit as well.
The 4 man starting team in attendance.
The Fly Baby is a really sweet machine and fly's just as good as she looked.
The how big is my Bum, contest results not yet in.
Ross putting the Extra through it's paces.
The Team had finished and left and a great job looks real slick.
IT IS READY FOR ACTION PEOPLE.
Just take care when transitioning from Grass to seal.
I suggest the 45 degree angle approach until it settles the Grass I mean.
Looking from the Drain Northern end of seal

Mean while over at the EM side of things it was pack up time.
