August fly in 2017
This years late summer fly in was held over the bank holiday with campers arriving
Friday and enjoying themselves so much the didn’t want to leave till Monday.We set
the site up Friday afternoon and by 6pm the sun was out and the wind had dropped
so the flying began. And went on till 8pm when we had a break for supper in the marque,followed
by night flying going on till near midnight.
Saturday morning came the wind was light and the sun was out early ,so the flying
began .Probably due to the weather forecast visitor numbers were low and by lunch
time the threatened rains showers had arrived flying continued between the showers
till late .After a Chinese supper in the marque , the clouds cleared and the night
flying was on till late .
Sunday dawned with a better weather forecast and the flying began at 10. Visitor
number were up with flyers from other clubs and people coming to watch and learn
about model flying .There was a great assortment of models in the air this weekend
.From Simon’s depron A4B flying bomb ,up to the large aerobats with all sizes and
shapes of models inbetween there were models constantly in the air keeping everyone
occupied and entertained The flying continued non stop all day with big Steve keeping
everybody fed and watered.Sunday night came all too soon ,but the the flyers staying
overnight carried on flying till late.
