The Prof's 'Tiggy'

06 November 2020

PETER'S TIGER MOTH WAS OUT OF THE HANGAR TODAY AND WE WERE ENTERTAINED WITH SOME LOVELY 'TIGGY' SCALE FLY PASTS

 

Peter built this model from a D B Sport & Scale kit.  It houses an O.S. 52 four stroke up front which makes a really nice sound as it sedately passes by.

 

The wing span is 58"  and together with some beautiful scale detail, it makes his Tiggy a real 'eye catcher'.

 

The quality of the build is exceptional as you would expect, so we hope Peter will have many enjoyable flights with this, his latest build, down at our Kirkistown flying site.

SPLASH-IN - SEPTEMBER 2020

 

 

Early arrivals.

 

Calm waters on the lough.

Getting prepared.

 

 

Two 'auld boys' and a young fella.

 

Wow!  A lovely 'Skyvan' expertly piloted by Mr Browne.
 

 

Laurie's 'Seawind' would not play ball.  Despite the best efforts of those who understand electrics, it stubbornly refused to start.

 

 

Keith with his Grand Tundra.  Today was it's first time on the water.  Did brilliantly.

 

 

Steve has his eye on something.

 

 

Barry brings his lovely J3 Cub to these events.  As always, he flew it in a lovely scale-like manner.

 

'Rescue One' on it's first deployment.   Looks to be a lot of weight up front!!

 

Steve's Acro Wot safely recovered after a tip stall.

 

 

A helping hand is always appreciated.

 

Some of the lads taking a break.

 

Johnny pops over to observe what we get up to.

 

One man and his duck!

 

Steve's duck almost gets onto the plane.

 

A great day was had at Cowey.  Lovely weather and lots of flying.

 

A big thank you to Sam for getting 'Rescue One' cleaned, inspected and made ready for the squadron.

BBQ 2020

30 August 2020

CLUB BBQ - 2020

The weather forecast for the day of our BBQ was not encouraging but none the less ten pilots came to Kirkistown determined to make the most of what the day would offer and to support the event.

 

 

Chef Barnes prepares the garnishes whilst the bbq gets up to temperature

 

Yours truely assists

 

Top class burgers and sausages cooking under the watchful eye of our chef

 

           

                                                             

                                                           Brian, Keith and Rob anxiously anticipating a 'Barnes Burger'

 

    

    

 

    

 

                                                  

 

 

Eight pilots sent their planes aloft and enjoyed the somewhat challenging conditions.  One pilot hangared
his model as it was deemed too small to be flown in the 18-mph breeze.  A wise decision.

It was a lovely warm sunny day at Kirkistown made all the better with the flying, the burgers and the craic.
