One of our member who is also a full size pilot and had flown in to the event in his full size plane - took pity on Chuck and took him for a ride.

Now while Chuck was GONE.... both spectators and the other pilots also had a soft spot for Chuck.... so we took up a collection for him.

Again both spectators and pilots dug deep into there pockets and gave Chuck all the pennies they had!!!

On a lighter Note

Yes our good friend (still I hope after the ribbing he took) Chuck damaged 2 aircraft. Both when you look close are fixable and knowing Chuck that may be sooner than you think. The hay on the far side of the runway had been cut and the stubble was about 6 inches high. For the lighter planes that landed there it was just a matter of flaring and slowing the airplane right down. unfortunately the Mustang Chuck was flying ended up out there and it took the landing gear right out. Pretty unforgiving on a heavier plane. When he was flying it sure looked nice in the sky. His second plane he was having so much fun chasing Fred and the Tiger Moth and Cliff and his Spacewalker around the sky I think he ran out of gas. Ended up landing with the wind also in the tall stuff and the fuse came apart right at the former. It was a clean break so it also looks fixable. Belive it or not he was going to fly his third plane when some convinced him to pass. Talk about support most would have packed it up after the first incendent.

This was a SUPER event, I highly recommend adding it to your calendars for must attend next year.

A super bunch of people, I can't say enough about the hospitality, they really make you feel at home.

So many highlights I can't begin to describe them. Seeing the maiden flight of the Arrow brought a tear to my eye though... I recall a collective sigh from all as she made her first pass overhead. Alas, I've forgotten the names of the father/son team who made her but, please pass on my congratulations.

Dennis, thanks for letting me fly your combat plane in the show... sorry about your plane Roger. Did anybody catch how many cuts I made? :P

Dennis is right.... Chuck took a beating -(in more then one way).

He did get a FREE flight in a Twin though. OUT over the lake to Pelee Island and back.....

Plus Jim was also right the even was GREAT....

Ask Jim how he liked landing on a 50 feet wide ashfault runway!!!

I'm not a big fan of asphalt ... but thankfully the wind co-operated and I did manage decent landings all weekend, not a single scuff mark on my plane this time.

My helis behaviour on asphalt was a bit disconcerting. I couldn't keep the tail tamed at low rpm, it just spun ... similar to flying a heli off floats. I had to let it slide until she spooled up. I also noticed some oscillating vibrations on spool up that I've never seen on grass.

I'm not being critical, the facility was excellent, with plenty of room. But pavement ... maybe I'm old fashioned or just used to grass but, I think I'd rather fly off something that reminds me of a golf green than 20 grit sandpaper.

Oh boy, first a soft spot develops for arf's (ie, his Raptor) and now he finds himself thinking about a golf green.....what's next????
McIntyre playing golf????

Glad to hear you guys had a good time and even allowed Ol Jimmy bean to smash someone else's plane up, you guys are too good to him....

Dead Stick Chuck

Chuck - well how do I say this... he had a GREAT TIME!!! Came with 3 GIANT SCALE planes .... and went home with two BROKEN and one he did not fly....

Let me guess ... not another dead stick!
That's peanuts for Chuck ... London swap meet is coming soon, he'll load up.
Maybe Chuck should switch over to electric, they still have to be charged of course

I'll give him a penny next time I see him

Frank
