Hi John

Here are some pics from today at Jomac.
The weather was awesome, the sun was warm! It was a great day with a good turnout.

If you'd rather have larger pics let me know as these have been resized to make them easier to send via email.


The pics are here.

This will be my last post on the JOMAC BLOG.
For some time now I've noticed that my eyesight was not what it used to be.
The other weekend I was flying an Old Timer, a Junior 60. I lost sight of it more than once while it was in the air. Luckily its free flight ancestry allowed it to stooge around the sky on its own in safety. But I realised that it was time I gave up flying.
I hope some one else will step in to keep a BLOG going. You can do this in one of two ways.
I can invite you as an administrator of the existing BLOG, or you can start a new BLOG.
Any volunteers?

I haven't been out to the flying field for the past couple of weeks so I'm a bit behind with news.
I hope to be there this coming weekend.

The Rogers' Tiger Moth lived up to its reputation of needing continual maintenance... elevator control cable broke on take off, you can just about see the consequence in this clip

Luckily they had a back up machine.
