Hibiscus - 2 planes, 2 pilots, 2 spotters - one big midair that had one plane look like it was part of a leaflet drop. Spectacular to watch but someone must be an unhappy chappy tonight.

Jonny - when will you be on Maori TV? - hopefully not next weekend while you're at the wedding!

NSMAC - another great afternoon there. Perfect weather, great company, 4 helis flying at once, several planes flying at the same time - no spotters, no accidents (that I saw).

Air Show - I was getting cranky with the 15 minute drive to base at 0700hrs - it normally only takes 7 - 8 minutes By the time I was able to leave base the traffic was back to normal.

Until next time....

I heard, then saw, the hibiscus mid-air crash. Not a pretty sound. Then just confetti falling from the air. Ouch.

I must have an understanding partner, she bought me a full-scale training flight for christmas. Finally took it this morning in a hughes 300 at Ardmore. I got to solo about 5-10 mins FFF and then about 2-3 mins of hovering. Pretty fun stuff. The biggest thing I noticed is how totally low-tech this thing was. Our helis are MUCH more technical than this. No gyros or the like there....

not much in the way of pics tho...

Yeah Hibiscus Coast FF was a disappointment for me.

They advertised it as a FF (Just doubled checked) Got there about 10am then realised with so many fliers and only 2 in the air at once rule I wasnt going to get much flying.

Some officious little man then came up to me and insisted I leave immediately because I had my dog (on a lead) with me.

Got to North Shore field about 10:30 and didn't leave until 5pm. Flew dozens of flights, nice relaxing bunch of fliers there. I know why Jason, Johnny etc like the field and atmosphere.

PS North Shore Field, like Hamilton is dog friendly too !

Plankers huh?

Did the nutter have a whistle and an orange jacket with steel capped boots holding a clipboard. Was he wearing an orange helmet with "assficial" written on it? Did he stand three inches from your face and blow his whistle...then started writing fervently upon his notepad insisting you leave with the killer canine?

That ladies(george and julie) and gentlemen is why we fly our dangerous uncaged upside down lawnmowers in the company of other heli nutz. Sounds like you had a great day.....lucky buggers... I had to work otherwise I may have come out with J.

Looks like I didn't miss much on Sunday, I had family staying over Saturday night so wasnt going to make it up anyway. Had a nice Helicopter free day on Sunday, didnt see a single thing fly just sat around in the sun by the pool. It was a pleasant change from helicopters

Life is like a bath, the longer you stay in it the more wrinkled you get.

Yep, Jonny, myself and Andrew were the 'freakshow' at the event, that's for sure. LOL. Jonny and I had 2 flights and then buggered off to NSMAC. Now I remember why I hate most plankers. LOL. Talk about bass-ackwards and stuck in the 1940's - sheesh.

I was referring to the FF. Yes, all the chaps I have met at the Shore have been great.

yep nuttin wrong with plankers. I like to dabble in some non rotating wing frolicking myself.

Their crashes are usually pretty boring to watch and normally the plank has been re kitted to the balsa seed stage.

Plankers watch their 1000 hr scratchbuilt creation replant iself and then look a bit sick with the tears welling up in their eyes. Poor buggers. We do the old BBS. Blades, boom and shafts and go refly. We get upset because the setup time has been wasted! Thats what really rips my undies.

Got a few flights in yesterday and all in all not a bad day.

And when I heard that this was the first time you had taken your training gear off Jack, boy was I impressed! The wings badge test is just around the corner

Nice flying from Jonny and Jason too, wondering what show from maori tv that was shooting? Hopefully we'll be able to see the footage soon at home.

Thanks, the SIM has helped allot, without it I would still be in training gear and probably crying over my latest crash.

I need to do some work on the house on saturday but should be able to get out for atleast a few hours then the whole day for sunday as well.

Lets hope the weather holds up and is just like today, clear 0 wind.

I'll be out there as much as possible, need to get more air time.
