The Pilot Log Book of Maurice Egerton. 1909 - 1911

This link will soon get buried in a very short period of time on our Blog however for regular readers I am going to give you a chance to read the REAL history of aviation on Sheppey.
Dont rush it - there's a lot to take in so grab a cup of tea and enjoy the real trials and tribulations of really early pioneers in aviation. Even the language of the written words used are fascinating and clearly show an age of "Empire"...

Enjoy - Regards Peter

The runway was dam wet...

Ok so some of us made it down to the field today - yes it did rain (quite a bit) but we still had some good flights. We got wet. BUT... We had tea. We had bacon / sausage sandwiches followed on with cakes - all cooked in the rain and eaten in the rain. (like being little kids at a party in the garden again). A few quid given by everyone there made for full tums and big "tales" of past flights with feats of airmanship that can only be likened to the best fishermans tales which were ever told... I must add to the latter comment above that big fishermans tales which are told seem to be believed however, in our group anything "fishy" which was said provided howles of laughter and thus we forgot about such things as rain... With a cup of tea in one hand and a bacon sarni in the other we had a great time - even with the occasional river of rain running down one's face it did not deter this little group of very wet nut cases from enjoying this typical British Summers day... Good fun and better than doing nowt.

Always hate the "first flight" - have I missed anything! Will anything break...
Glad to say it all went well and yet again I am amazed at this planes flat turns.
Thanks to Dave for filming the flight...

Sunday 1st August

Time goes so quick - August already and the sun is setting at 8:49pm so the days are getting shorter...
Some conjecture regarding interference on 2.4 GHz - few planes went down!!!
Got some video at the field but please forgive me for not getting you all.
