There are no less than three powered planes, a glider, and an Airbug in this photo. Can you spot them?
 
Counter-clockwise from upper right - Wicked Wanda (being towed), Terry's Sport Cub (streamer tug), Tia's Night Vapor, Tom's Airbug (glider tug), and Vanessa's Spacewalker. Note "kink" in streamer where it's snagged by the glider towline (in front of the BB net). Busy airspace!

We had a superb turnout for the first session of 2015, and the indoor flying action was non-stop again this week. Oh, what fun we had!

The airspace at the Henry was buzzing with tiny flying machines again this week - and what a pleasure to see so many new and younger pilots, with flying skills that improve each week! Even the old dogs are learning a new trick or two - and positive proof of the benefits of practice, practice, practice...

The Sumos were back this week for some airborne antics and shooting the hoop. The micros couldn't resist the challenge of the hula hoop either, and soon joined in the fun. As usual, the session ended with "fiercely" contested Airbug races under the expert guidance of racemaster Cecil. We'll catch you next time, Matt!

Attendance was down a bit this week, but the indoor flying action was non-stop just the same. Talented young pilots outnumbered the more 'senior' types - and included Aerin with her Ember 2 (now on it's third prop-shaft), Ben manoeuvring his brand new Hobbyzone "Duet" like a pro, and Matt who flew circuit after circuit with grandpa's Sumo.
 
Among those absent, were our regular star photographers Peter & Mark. Thus, we have only one picture this week, but with some historic significance nontheless. Seen here is young Matt flying his first ever circuits with the Sumo, first time Airbug driver Dave (who placed third in the feature race later) and the other 'stand-in' amateur photographers Cec and Ben capturing the moment!
