Impressive, Boocs.

Imagine your GS if you were in the Queen of the Skies producing a TAS of 520 knots?

And when the wind blows the other way:





Granted I only had a TAS of about 80 at the time.

Great Eastern Fly In



Haven't seen any pics from the usual suspects, so here goes. Weather wasn't the greatest, but a pretty good turnout none the less. The Grumman Mallard above was a highlight (what is better than one round engine? Two of them), Mustang, T-28, Wirraway and Winjeel, not to mention assorted RVs and other lighties good to see too.

The ever polite and helpful Alan Spears was gracious enough to overlook the drool brought on by his beautiful paintings. SWMBO has been armed with a few photos and detailed instructions for several birthdays and Christmases to come!

From the lighter side of town I enjoyed seeing the Sling on its first outing, a handsome and altogether chunkier version of the ubiquitous 912 powered RA types.

Queen 'O' the skies

Awwww C'mon, surely the Queen of the skies is the BAC 1-11. Only aircraft I've flown with a Cigar Lighter in the forward instrument panel!

I'm hoping we get to see a bit more of the Mallard in and around SEQ - especially if there is a water landing on offer! Just the thing for Aye Ess to put on canvas

Here are a few more from the day, hats off to the organisers, I would have loved to have spent the weekend but had competing obligations, would be wonderful to see the airpark get off the ground too, so to speak.
