I witnessed the sad demise of Pete's two planes last Thursday on the club field,  but felt that at least the Cougar could be repaired without the use of a hammer! The wings needed only a minor repair but the front of the fuselage was in bits. Pete handed me the bits, some balsa parts were missing but I had my own Cougar as a pattern. I have made some progress to date:

Only minutes after I took this photograph a friend of mine brought round a plane for me his son had rescued from the local tip. It was complete with radio that functions OK plus a a Super Tiger 51. Anyone know what it is?

New Visitors to the Field on Saturday

Reuniting old friends

After sitting, for what seemed an age, with tears in my eyes and a lump in my already injured throat, seeking a website which reunited people with long-lost items, I was on the verge of despair. 'Engines Reunited' does not exist! Before having my own website created, at a considerable sum which us pensioners can ill-afford, it occurred to me to explore one last avenue. I wonder if the 'old and bold' at Bartons Point can help?  If any-one sees or hears from Adrian (aka Milky), shake him gently by the throat and ask him to contact me, by email, by this blog, by messenger or if need be by a medium, to let me know if he still has my engine. I don't care if it's fixed or not, I just want it back, I need it back, please let me have it back before it becomes more appropriate to enter it for Antiques Roadshow!  Rant over, thank you.

A new venture

Gentlemen, (and Ladies, of course!). After watching lots of You Tube, it has come to my attention that we are missing out on a bit of model aviation. Those of us with gliders need to modify the aircraft with a tow release and convince a fellow member to use one of his planes as a tug! The ideal applicant needs to be a smart, intelligent, man-about-town, who happens to be a very good pilot. Might I suggest Dave (slippery when wet) Cook, Peter (he with the sweety bomber) Bruce or Simon (I've got a couple of nice powerful aircraft) Psaila. I look forward to your comments. Roy
