Zipper.
Thats one strong plane. Two C/F joiner rods and a plug pulled off the servo wire was all the damage. It was a good flight prior to "landing".

Wow. Ten new slopes on the list of slopes flown in just over a week. Give her a new dress and send her out to play with the boys, and she gets around like a... well, she's certainly been getting around.

Great job on photo documenting all of the Dom's latest travels. The new finish looks great in the air!

Yes, that will be perfect. And with the actual jpg files, the exif data embeds the dates onto the map! It's great.

Doh! I missed all the "ands" in the original list. 17 slopes in a week is amazing.

The 'Dom' tallied up two more slopes today bringing her UK total to 19 in two weeks.
She caught some ripping air over Nont Sarah's on Saddleworth Moor (Site of the Brady / Hindley moors murders) in the hands of my TMFC Club Secretary Mark Royle and I and then she got over onto Tinkers Hill in Yorkshire, home of the Huddersfield MAC for a few quick circuits in the crappy 'off the slope' air.
She'll be going back to Tinkers soon for the BMFA 60" nationals and a longer stay in the hands of the little Rocket Ron....

Great stuff Andy, 'Dom over Hells Mouth bay on the North West Corner' one of my favourite sites, I use to drive within 100 yards of the clff, but that was about 26 years ago! Can that still be done?

There are still a few missing from there mate. Besides giving you the wrong location of Ivinghoe Beacon (it should be N 51 degrees 50' 02", W 0 degrees 36' 12") The Wiltshire ones seem to be missing. (Roundway, Devizes, Westbury, Uffington) also Edge hill which is up near to Burton Dassett and two of my local slope at Winter Hill and Rivington Pike.

The two new ones to also add are Nont Sara's N 53degrees 37' 09", W 1degree 58" 26"

and Tinkers Hill at N 53 degrees 33' 34", W1degree 44' 02"
Pics are in the previous posts.
There are currently 19 UK 'Dom'inated sites overall.

I updated the info onto the map, including the last two spots. All those white horse pics had no Dom in 'em so I left them out...but I did d/l the Roundway, Uffington, and Whitehorse map shots.

map

13 of 17 UK spots are represented - and all flying done in a 2 week span - you guys rock!
