New Satellite Pics

Just found that the satellite view has been updated in the not far distant past.

Not bad.

Static Saturday

19 November saw a few of us at StJohns church for their annual fete, good weather meant lots of passers by.

A pleasant morning I thought.

Brians PBY 5A won Pilots Choice
Fab Trophy!

Brian was really stoked to receive this, as the standard of models there was extremely high, it went up on the wall as soon as he got home.

Brian made a great choice off the prize table

Swamps Sunday

SWAMPS Club Memorial Day for David Chigwidden was not the best for weather, just look at the sock here.

 Undeterred, some aviation was committed prior to lunch.
Basic necessities here.
Fred wove magic at the BBQ and it wasn't long before a gourmet luncheon was on the table and everyone got stuck in.

 After lunch, sitting and chatting, one of the members disappeared and returned with containers of scones, a bucket of cream and a jar of jam.
WOW in 6 foot high red and gold plastic letters..... worlds greatest scones, topped with perfectly whipped cream, with (I think) just a touch of vanilla essence therein, the strawberry jam was a delight too. Fabulous!!!

Alex had said to Fred that it would be really good to fly "Uncle Bob", a Howard something, it hadn't been out of the shed for a long time, so Fred had done a few jobs on it and it was time to see if it would still fly.

And fly it did! Many hearts were in mouths of spectators and Fred alike, with the wind suddenly gaining strength and blowing even this large model about.
Landings were experienced, and third try lucky as Fred finally got it to stay on the ground.
I had a great day and the hospitality was excellent, many thanks to all the 'Swampies'.
