    Another great day of flying…

    2057This morning was a another great day for a fly. Martin send an email saying that he would fly up for breakfast. Now there was a challenge! I told him that Anne would cook up some pancakes… That got me into trouble. So, we got the text and Martin was on his way. The fleet of Tanargs fired up and one by one the sky was darkened by the mass of Tanarg aircraft heading for Benalla. Well OK so there were five Tanargs, C02292but it looked good. We all flew down towards Benalla and then we spotted the fantastic shape of Martins Tanarg heading our way. Ken was in closes formation with Martin. Anne and I decided to go head to head with the on coming aircraft. This was going to make a great shot. I reached for the camera… But it was not there, I had left it on the table. Bugger. The fly by looked great and we all followed them back to YFT. We had breakfast at the Naked Tree Cafe. The breakfast was well worth it. The Chef at the Naked Tree is a student pilot with us. Tulsi, who will be in tomorrow morning for training.

    1996Heather has her first flight…

    Heather called in the other day to drop off some magazines and during the conversation Heather was asked if she would like to go for a fly. The answer was “does a one legged duck swim in circles”… We will take that as being a yes. Friday afternoon was going to be the day, but with a cold front still 2005moving through it was not going to happen. So Saturday morning was the day for Heathers first flight. Heather was up with Ken in the rear seat for an hour as we flew down to the Warby rangers and back. It was a great flight and not to bumpy either. I think Heather injoyed the flight as well.

    Yarrawonga Fires

    2011Yarrawonga Fires…

    Today was a great day to have a look at the area that was burnt by fire. This was the Lake Rowan fire. It was easy to see where the fire had started and how it spread in the 40 kt winds. It was amazing how the fire raced past some properties and left them alone, yet others were burnt right up to their doorsteps. The first photo is looking from the West to the East, and the second photo is looking from the East looking to the West.2046

    1993What’s wrong with this picture?

    Ken flew to Wahring Field to pick me up after delivering Dennis’s XT-912 aircraft. After a cuppa at YWGH we headed back to Yarrawonga. The weather front was on its way and the sky was beginning to get bumpy. Ken climbed to 3500 feet and the air was smoother, but our groundspeed was somewhat reduced. The flight should have taken under an hour, but we were in the air for nearly 1.4 hours. I was taking photo along the way. On our decent into Yarrawonga the air became quit rought, and on short final we got a hit. The photo tells the story. It was a great flight.
