The Saturday saw less members participating due to poor weather, however a few braved the elements and even flew. Of course a few beef burgers were consumed!

On the Sunday the weather was good and there were a variety of warbirds on display.

Not everyone enjoyed complete success, although Mick always manages to smile on misfortune!

Hannibal

The following slides show Mick's Hannibal. A big beast it was and it flew beautifully. However the construction of the airframe was probably not up to the power plant that was driving it.

  • Greaser

  • Oops

    Oh dear! Unfortunately the tail fell off or was it shot down? The powere plant was probably too much for the airframe, and a touch of the flutters developed.
