Title: Wed afternoon/evening flying April 19
Post by: Michael on April 17, 2006, 10:34:09 AM
Four W's permitting (weather, wind, work and wife), I'm going to fly late Wednesday afternoon, maybe about 4 or 5pm (at TEMAC of course).

So far the weather looks good and dry.

Hello Michael,
I will try to be there on Wednesday too.
I was at the field yesterday, Easter Sunday, from about 12:30 PM to about 3 PM and there were 3 guys already flying. Jim Connell also came later for his last Day at the field before departing and bid him farewell.

Hi Michael

According to the moving supervisor, my wife Cindy, things are a little ahead of schedule.  And since my plane and RC gear has somehow avoided being packed up just yet I’ve received permission to go flying after work on Wednesday.  Looking forward to flying with you.

Forecast for this afternoon:

19 to 20 degrees C. 10km north wind.

PERFECT!

I should be there by 5pm.

(I'm bringing boots anyway; the ground will probably still be wet.)

We had a great time flying. A few bumpy landings, but no crashes!

Aside from myself, Glenn Nikolaiko, Colin Moses, Jim Connell, Nestor Santos, Ronald Khoo and Robert Pike came out. We were flying from 4pm until 8pm (dusk).

There were slow-flyers, scale planes, trainers, sport and aerobatic planes, a high-speed glider, a jet and a helicopter.

Watch for photos in an upcoming EMFSO newsletter and soon on the TEMAC website.

Hello Michael,
I flew again Today and it was another good day to fly. I flew my BB goose and had a 16 min. flight with it with very little wind. Another flyer came too.
By the way the Nest was still there with the mother bird doing the same thing. I really hope they survive.
