A modest turnout this week, but several new planes made their first flights - including Craig's Arrow, Tom's F-16, and Chris' BAE Hawk. Young Matt continues to improve his flying skills - flying Grandpa's Sumo & EZ-3D Trainer. And thanks to race-master Cecil for the fabulous prizes!

Our lead photo this week (right) shows Tom giving last minute instructions to fascinated fellow pilots prior to the start of our first ever "All up last down" contest - and what great fun we had!
 
A friendly completion, eight aircraft took off together, and one by one they came down... for a wide variety of excuses... er... reasons.
 
Soon, there were only three - and they went around and around and around. And then they went around some more. These most unlikely candidates for an endurance event (two aerobatic foamies and a WW1 Nieuport biplane!) eventually ran out of electrons, and each landed safely to a chorus of cheers and jeers.
 
Thanks again to Cecil for the delicious prizes. We will do this again soon - it was a blast!

We had three hours of non-stop indoor action again this week. At one point, we had all pilots airborne - but no one to take a photo!

Our last session of the 2014-2015 indoor season was a blast! Excellent participation, lots of flying, and oh...  those yummy prizes from Cec!
 
Thanks to everyone who paricipated and made this our best indoor season ever.
 
'Till we meet again in the gym - see you at the flying field!
