No, I'm not talking about those who may allegedly dive their models on you while you're trying to concentrate on the maiden flight of that new warbird...(but you know who you are).
While we were all having a great ol' time in Robinvale two weeks ago, some local idiots decided to take their cars and motorbikes onto the strip.
They made a fair old mess of the grassed areas around the runways, and it's fortunate our runways are gypsum and pretty hard, and we hadn't had too much rain lately. Another piece of luck is we're about 3 weeks away from a major clean up in preparation for the October 13-14 AEFA electric fun fly, so if this had happened after a lot of work, there'd be hell to pay...
The police have been notified, and one idito who we caught last year is still on pending charges, so hopefully this crew get nailed soon too.
Despite that, 4 of us had a late aftenoon fly on Sunday, with my Sea Fury having another spin, Greg's PC-9 having its first flight with a new OS 55 AX engine, and Scott and his boys burning some lipos in the FMS P-51 foamie.
We're looking forward to a big Father's Day afternoon session this weekend, and allocating some jobs for the electric show.

That's a real shame. We had a similar incident about a year ago.
I'm hoping for some good father's day weekend flights as well, weather is looking good!
