Vintage Aircraft Fly In number 249

The morning was very cold and windy and the wise Old Timers stayed at home. Only the daft ones, that is to say me and Ted, went out to JOMAC. This was a pity as by 1100 the weather was pleasant.

Then, Francois' new 5 metre Thermik XL had its first flight.

Here's a short clip...

Large Scale Glider Fly In at Warthog Radio Flyers

The usual brigade represented JOMAC -- Francois, Howard, Mike, Ken, Adrian and Stuart with his super tug. This was just as well as Chris Adrian's tug met with misfortune.

Here's Chris' tug.

Mike May's 8M DG 505

Mike's 4M Nimbus just after take off.

I'm not sure whose this strange machine is.

Unfortunately both the fin and rudder came off in flight leaving it with no yaw stability. Luckily he managed to land in the grass with no further damage.
