Hello Everyone,

It was another good flying day, although a little turbulent at times. Overall just a fun flying day. The Hawk was back, since Mike moved they've been gone. I couldn't get any good pics of it though, I did get a couple of Osprey's but they fly high and are hard to get a good shot of. Tom had a new plane that was easy to photograph It flew great and went home with no issues. I think it was a Fox scale plane. Have fun. And BTW Buck got his G-Lady back in the air after last weeks spectacular midair with Paul.

Hello All,

We had a great time flying, the wind was great had to add a lot of down elevator to keep up the speed, that's a good thing. There was a crash though, pretty bad but I got very lucky and got it on camera!

Check it out

Well, we had another great weekend of flying, but any weekend flying is great right? Jamie bought his Explorer out for a ride and it went home in great condition, Jose took a few shots of my new Zulu, that's the only bad thing about taking the pictures is none of your own planes get pictures taken. The weather was pretty good, a little cloudy but still good, very smooth lift, very little turbulence.

Have Fun!

Hello everyone,

We had a great day flying and took almost 300 pictures, and still had time to fly. My new Zulu flew pretty good, it needed some adjusting and made it home safely. Tom and Paul had a great time racing each other with their Bats having more fun than should be allowed. The conditions were really good for sloping in general, and everyone had loads of fun! I l really love flying at this hill and wouldn't trade it for anything. Until next week,

Hello Everyone,

I was only able to fly for a couple of hours last Saturday, and the pictures I took were not that great. I am just starting out with photography and I'm reading as much materials as I can cram in to learn as fast as possible. The flying conditions were fair, but the wind was at a not ideal angle from the SE, so the flying suffers a little from that, but we still have fun! I included a couple of pics of my new plane that will fly this Saturday wind & weather willing. I bought a Zulu from the East HK Warehouse, and I only have to balance it to fly, so we will see this Saturday! I always get excited when I fly a new plane for the maiden flight, but the more it costs, the more nervous I get I also like to shoot birds as you can see, I like to study them to see how I can improve my flying. Enjoy,

Hello all,

Here's a few pictures I'm posting to see how the reaction is and to see if I should start to post weekly. The picture of the Buzzard is our mascot bird, there are hundreds of them at the landfill and they help us by identifying where the thermals are so we can get aloft as we fly mostly non-powered gliders, and it's the challenge of staying aloft that has the appeal to the pilots. Sometimes we can stay up for hours at a time. Enjoy the pics and I hope to start posting them on a weekly basis as long as I can keep up.
