Local flying at Calgary today too!

Dale and I flew at our local club field, Stampede today. I had the Elan and Dale had his Sprint. We spent our day flying together today as it was a georgous day here with temps at 26C. As we are getting more comfortable flying together maybe will able to try it get a bit closer and try some formations. I wanted to try it a bit today, but my gurgling and popping came back today after changing pumps. So I talked to Bob at Jetcat this week and he says it sounds like the engine is out of tune. So I am lucky to have the other 120SE in my Kingcat so I have already swapped it out. The Elan engine will go down to Bob.
We were also shown how a turbo prop works on Quiqui Yak 54. Brent Bullen from our club here, bought it complete from Quiqui, and it looks and sounds great in the air.
He is running a mixed smoke system of smoke oil and liquid pariffin. It really looks good and has great hang time.
I think that the fellows up north were flying today as well, but I will let them speak for themselves. Great day in Alberta for flying all over today.
