Tuesdays flying

Managed to get a break in the weather, and a break in lectures on Tuesday this week. Tom and I were able to get 3 1/2 hours in, just running through the micros. Tom had his camera so he was able to get some shots of the P-51 and the (now very battered) T-28. We also had Toms Champ and an Easysky brushless Cessna with us, both managed to get some video which I'll upload when I can.

About an hour into our session we were joined by an Apache Helicopter. Not a model one, a real one, flying about 200ft off the deck. No idea why, or where it was going but it was one hell of a sight!


[Before anyone asks/berates us, there is no airforce base, there is no landing strip, no heli pad, no nothing near us! I have no idea why the Apache was so low, it's never happened before and I can't imagine it will happen again!]
