Sunday Afternoon November 22 Report/Pictures

I almost forgot that I had promised Robert that I would carve a boston butt pork roast into smaller pieces for the grill, but I managed to get there just in the nick of time. The spread was grilled hot dogs, sausages, boneless pork riblets, beans, rice, tomato gravy, pop cicles, and pumpkin cake. The weather was cloudy and a little drizzly at times, but a good number of folks showed up and here are a few having pleasant after lunch conversation.

Today was a good time to get one of the big Cubs cranked up, in the air, and do some relaxed flying.

Probably not so relaxed after this flight was Frank Madison. His biplane went in hard, nose first, and the big gas engine shows just how hard it looks to have met the ground. Club pylon racing organizers, Mike and Russ are working with a combat airplane here.

Jim Jordan was interested in getting the engine running on this trainer type airplane, one of many planes in a package deal that he purchased a couple of weeks ago from a getting out of hobby sale.
Robert Sanderson was showing his new Coro type constructed parachute recovery and snurf bombing airplane, one of his more conventional designs.
Knocking the dust off this nice, but had not been flown in some time Ultimate Bipe, Russ Green had it going good till half the muffler fell off, but was recovered.

Tony had his pristine L-4 Cub almost ready for some flights today, but there was a problem with the onboard batteries for the engine ignition and the radio system. Wayne checked the batteries voltage with his battery analyzer and found them both dead as a door nail, seems that somehow the switches had been left on several days and drained them. Could not get them sufficiently recharged at field in time for flying today.

Russell has a nice carpeted lounge area in the pavilion and for more realistic appearances the kids have drawn out on the floor some imaginary walls for a kitchen, bedroom, workshop, and a restroom. It seems that someone used the restroom when Russell was not looking and forgot to flush it.

wink.gif I wondered if anyone would ever figure out that was fishy.... biggrin.gif

That wasn't the prop from Franks bipe. It was the prop from Paul's agcat with the 4-stroke...
