Joe had his Hanger 9 P-47 that I built a year or so back, Tim Had his Hanger9 Bf-109 they did some flying together. Nice sounds.  Joe was also working on his Italian fighter running the new engine.  The Saito FA-100Ti is unique with its inline layout.  I flew my Mega Bat (Upcoming kit) Habu and my Artizan.  So for me it was a foamy night.  Started very windy (25 gusts) but settled right down at dusk.

Tuesday Flying June 2nd

Tuesday flying was special this week.  It was my birthday!  My sons and the grand-kids showed up at the field.  It was really nice of them to make the extra effort to come out to the “Weed Patch” as my dear mother used to call any flying field.  I flew my GP Fokker DRI.  I enjoy this bird. I bought her a few years back crunched up.  Rebuilt her and sprayed a coat of KlassKote Satin to dull her down and lengthen the life span reducing oil intrusion. She is not hard to fly but is nervous, always doing something.  She also likes rudder and aileron so to fly her well you use both hands.  I like that.  Reminds me of helicopters.  We also did a group jet fly and Scott had his fleet of electrics.

After a few hours of flying we went to eat, It was a really nice day.
