Mick Moore Memorial Scale Rally - Long Mynd

Post by RobbieB » 02 Sep 2019, 22:06

A really good turnout for this event and a great day. Fresh but very flyable with more lift than you could shake a stick at.

Despite the fresh conditions both modern and vintage machines flew all day.

A big thank you to the Long Mynd boys for their efforts in organising this rather special event.

Some photos to convey the atmosphere of the day:

Hi Robbie,
Great photos from you as usual, thanks.
It was good to see Micks models flying again, he would have been more than pleased, well done to Pete, Phil and Mark for letting us see them.
The Rhineland still with its whistle.
A great day and nice to see a good turn out for Mick.
John

My Gull used to whistle; maybe it still does and I just can't hear it anymore :lol:

..............and it was all going so nicely:

and then the mother of all cross-wing gusts:

but it did survive without any damage to the model; but it did do this:

it pulled a 4mm brass pin through that rear dural incidence plate.

Hi Robbie,
Having seen your perfect approach for landing and then to witness what happened I was shocked to see what had been done to the wing joiner,
To get it out you must have a `dentists' arm to be able to pull it out. Pleased its no more damage to your beautiful model.
