Well I just had the most interesting maiden flight ever!

Before I begin, the plane performed perfectly.


I got the field for a lunchtime flight. Nobody around so I taxied out onto the strip, noted the cross wind and took off. Climb out was great and these larger props do make a difference.

Just as I'm adjusting the trim a tad, I hear the unmistakable sound of every Aussie kids outdoor nightmare.......... PLOVERS!!!! WoooOOSH right past my head!

In my rush to get up in the air I didn't notice the Plover nest about 3 meters to my right. So I start to make my way to the other end of the strip (about 100m away), the whole time being attacked by these evil birds.

Now for those that don't know, a Plover is a bird that nest in pairs on the flat open ground and are more territorial than a guard dog! They also never attack solo. Both of them will perform coordinated dive bombing runs at your head, one after the other in a continuous cycle.

So on my FW 190's maiden flight I had it engaged in real life close air support, swooping the aggressors and distracting them while I retreated out of their range.

I'm glad to report that I am fine, and even better, the FW performed flawlessly. The birds on the other hand, well, they will be dealt with while nobody is looking.

This is the culprit for those that are curious.

Quite a good looking bird actually, and like most Australian animals, is armed with sharp spikes on the wing shoulders. Some say they are poisonous and some don't, but all I know is that my neighbours dog got attacked by a Plover two years ago. It got spiked in the neck and was sick and couldn't see for a few days. So who knows?

Just another animal trying to kill us at the park. Glad we don't have drop bears in our area.
