Sunday the 30th was WET & Sunny & WET.
Ya know when it's been damp when the Ducks turn up to swim around in the Puddle's on the Maneuvering Area & that puddle is 5 inches DEEP.
There is also around and inch of standing water all over the place very soggy.
Just going on from ANZAC day our Honour board in the Club house.
Which we now have a tangible connection for.
When Alan & Ann were in the U.K. a few years back they went to where Anne's Uncle (Fighter Pilot) was buried and his monument from a grateful town.
He is E.M Hight on the Board.
Gary and SNG were in for a bit.
Check out the interesting arrival here.
Ya can tell he's been 4 X 4ing.....
Looks like nice day but Mum Nature was just taking the piss. It rained again soon after this.
SNG & Gary taxing the long way round for 27.
Taxing was up by to the Glider Hangar then down 34 then up to 27.
Gone and drip drying in the Air.
Ya know it's gonna rain again when these about.
We have a new CAA sign excellent. The other one was getting a bit doughy.
Another one pertaining to the EM Team as operating off active Aerodrome use has to be strictly controlled and it is.
Same with Taranaki Gliding Club
Mean while over at the Puddle the Plovers had moved in.
Looks like it's bath day. I did notice they seem to have the Donald Trump hair do go figure.
Some Vid here.
Back over at Hangar 3 Graeme had arrived on his very nice looking Triumph Motorcycle.
Being an Past Aviator (Might change after seeing this lot) we wandered around looking at what we have at SD.
Yes the Mustang was a hit another Fan ( we will have to get TVG it's own PO Box shortly) as the Mustang Grin appears.
Also tried out SSF for size and was used to centre stick as used to fly Airtourers
