Best have a read if you live south of Watford Gap! There is an article on telling the difference between our forked tail flying friends and hopefully a bit about our German trip.
With a rake of celebrations and parties over this weekend to celebrate the Jubilee we’ll just hope that the weather at least gives a bit so that we can all join in. We’ve been busy building a Beacon Burner but its top secret so more on that later. Suffice to say the Mark 1 was truly pretty spectacular but used a cylinder of fuel a tad too rapidly so we had a bit of a rethink and now we should be able to get about five minutes out of a tank and not set fire to the structure its going in! Come Monday we’ll find out! To keep us in the Diamond Jubilee Celebration mood this issues picture is grand-daughter Holly’s cake that got her first prize in the Jubilee Cake Competition.
There you have it, a few new few bits and bobs to check out apart from the normal EASA Part M Subpart F & G Continuing Airworthiness Maintenance Organisation (CAMO) stuff that lurks in the pages bit. Thanks for visiting we hope you enjoy your stay. Best get on and load the canoe up with champers and canapes so we can join in the Thames parade. Now where’s me life jacket?
