April 13, 2013 Field Maintenance Day

Many thanks to the members who showed up for our field maintenance day today. We were able to roll the runway, patch the fabric, and clear out the weeds.

It was another chamber of commerce day in the Espaņola Valley with blue skies, temps in the 60s, and light winds for most of the morning.

Since the field didn't require too much work we were rewarded with some good flying!

The members that came out today were Art, Ross, Jerry, Tom, Pat, Ruben, Ray and myself.

Special thanks to Art for hauling out his tractor, Ross for bringing the roller, and Tom for dropping off the skid blade.

Ross' P-51 maiden

Ross maidened his Rockwell P-51 pylon racer. After a bit of landing gear adjustment, it flew great. Fast and stable. Though a bit too fast for me to get decent in air photos.

Pat's Piper Pawnee taxi test

Pat brought out his big World Models Piper Pawnee for some taxi testing. The CG isn't set yet so it stayed on the ground. But the DLE55 got some run time taxiing up and down the runway.

Everyone is looking forward to the maiden flight.
