A nice Warbirds day with friends and flying.  (In that order) 

I had more time to share with friends because my transmitter battery went too low on me...  Only had a couple of flights early on with my Sopwith Triplane.  But I guess if the number of wings count for anything, I tripled my pleasure.

The rain held off for most of the afternoon.  We had a few cracks of thunder and a couple of bolts of lightning that got everyone scurrying to take down the sun shades.

Graham did a fine job of BBQing and the rest of us had a fine time enjoying his tube steaks, done to perfection.

Rob Dickinson won the most 'courageous flier' and brought home the beautiful print that had been anonymously donated as a prize for today's event.

I have provided a few pictures below.  I am sure there will be many more because there was lots of activity.

As you can see, the mosquitoes were quite heavy today.  Flying right through Bill's left ear and out his right.

Bruce,

re: "...We had a few cracks of thunder and a couple of bolts of lightning that got everyone scurrying"

That was just my dear wife giving me a lecture on what I have to accomplish in the future now that we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary today.
Yes Dear! ;D ;) 8)  She used the sound of thunder to delete the expletives. :)

Looks like I missed a great day... or as Andy would say "It was a great day because Frank missed it!!" ;D

Sorry I missed Glenn's Mosquito Mission and Wingnutz's visit.

Frank

Thanks everyone for a short (ened by weather) great day and especially to Glenn for his one man tribute to the RAF's Centenary. Missed a few of the regulars but enjoyed the event...can't wait to see the pictures of Oscar's hat...umbrella...okay, umbrella hat!
BTW I drove N on ON 48 going home and by the time I got to Ballantrae, it was raining so hard, I had to pull off the road and wait a few minutes. We left at the right time!

  Bill,
 I really enjoyed seeing the pair of Mosquito's up for a flight...very cool indeed!
 The weather was just as forecast, but the crack of thunder over head certainly told us that it was time to leave!
 Just another great day at TEMAC! I am looking forward to seeing some of Greg's (or anyones) flying shots, the sky made for an amazing backdrop.

had a great time thanks to all that came out! Here are just a few shots I got with the clouds :) ... hoping to get all the photos posted in the photo album.

Glenn,
Really enjoyed the Mossie flight too! I wish my model had been a bit faster and able to better keep up with yours, but overall, great fun!...and you're right, great photos Greg! Thanks!
I've repaired the bent landing gear on the Mossie and am looking forward to flying it soon...
