Great Day

18 July 2021

                               SATURDAY 17TH JULY
        A WONDERFUL SUMMER'S DAY AT KIRKISTOWN                

Thirteen pilots took to the sky and thoroughly enjoyed the lovely summer weather.  Ideal flying conditions.

The forecast for the day indicated the wind would be along the concrete runway but in fact it was along the tarmac runway.  Not a problem!

 

Don't forget, the Club's BBQ is available at all times so, please feel free to utilise it if you wish.  No Charge!!

 

 

Both runways have received the attention of the NDMAC repair squad. The cement mixer kindly donated to the club by John W has made this task so much easier than before.

 

 

 

 

Weed spraying is recommended to be done every two weeks. . So, if you have a few minutes to spare, grab a sprayer and 'zap' the little green shoots before they have a chance to establish.

 

 

 

Some steel panels on  the rear of the shed have rusted quite badly in places.  Peter McD and Mike have kindly volunteered to address the problem before they deteriorate further.   A big thank you for that. 

 

 

That's all for now folks.  "Happy landings"

Lawrence Pupeteer

02 July 2021

OUT OF LAWRENCE'S WORKSHOP APPEARED THIS LOVELY

SOPWITH 'PUPETEER' READY FOR THE SKY
 

 

This beautifully built model is constructed from a Flair 'Pupeteer' short kit.

Spanning 60-inches it is powered by a Saito 56 FSA, four stroke engine, which sounded wonderful.  The covering is Oratex on which
Lawrence has done a very professional paint job.

The pilot figure, the gun and the mock engine are all 3-D printed.

Keith performed the maiden flight flying it in a very scale-like manner.  Nice to watch.  He reported it needed only one click to trim
the elevator and one click for the ailerons.  Testimony to the model's very accurate construction.

Can't wait to see your next model Lawrence!

Runway Repairs

15 June 2021

THE MUCH NEEDED RUNWAY REPAIRS COMMENCED TODAY

 

The NDMAC Repair Squad arrived at Kirkistown this evening and immediately got to work with the task of repairing the cracks and holes in the runways.

The evening, as luck would have it, was warm and dry and with a fairly stiff breeze.

Now that the club has aquired a mixer, kindly gifted to us by a member, (JW), the job of cement mixing could only be described as a 'piece of cake!

 

Mike seemed to be enjoying crack filling.......

 

Johnny was as happy as I've ever seen him........

 

Mark was putting his back into it..........

 

George fills lots of 'nasties'......

 

Brian had knee pads on.   I should have thought of that!

 

Dennis dishes out the 'mix'

 

Team NDMAC taking a well deserved break.

The squad worked hard and everyone seemed to have enjoyed the craic and the satisfaction of a job well done.

There are still more sections requiring attention which we intend address fairly soon.

A very big "thank you" to Mike, Mark, Dennis, Brian, George and Johnny

Steve's AcroWot

25 April 2021

AN 'ACROWOT' LIKE NO OTHER

 

 

Steve decided his trusty AcroWot could do with a face lift.  What a lovely scheme and definately worth the time he spent giving it his care and attention. Beautiful job.
