Today I went flying and the club had a serious outbreak of Alex Whittaker. The superstar paparazzi stayed for about an hour. We were all humbled to have such an auspicious presence amongst our number.
I have a new trainee (I wish I could charge for this) He had built a World Models Frontera Senior powered by an Irvine 46 (OS built) He had made a great job of this not small model (82″). I have had the pleasure of owning one of these for over 5 years and have found it a really nice model to fly. At present it flies with an OS 91 Surpass and is fitted with a towbar for hauling small to medium-sized gliders aloft. The new trainee flew my Frontera Senior on a buddybox and did very well for his first ever flight. He was doing figure 8’s on the first flight, and could keep a level circut. Impressive.
Despite blustery wind and some showers a good afternoons flying was had by all. It’s good to be alive.
