      Engine runs today...

      If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can't understand it, take it from me: It's all balls. RJM.

                          Just heard the delightful rumble of a pair of Gipsy Queens... dashed outside and there was a Dove, Planefinder tells me it's G-OPLC. Now have wet socks as wasn't wearing any shoes!

                                At a regional (including western Canada) antique aeroplane fly-in at our local field, a rare Grumman Mallard arrived. The first time I'd seen one in person. A bit smaller than I'd expected...not much larger than the Goose it was parked next to.

                                Also, a spotless DC-3C (in vintage Pan American markings and a great 1960s-style corporate interior) attended and was available for rides.

                                Smallet civil types included a pair of Staggerwings, two Cessna 195s, a Piper Pacer resplendent in its factory scheme in cream and red, a Howard DGA, two Stearman Speedmails, a 1936 WACO Custom Cabin biplane, and a beautiful yellow Cub. A polished aluminum early Beech Bonanza (1947-54) was at the field shooting landings.

                                Warbirds included pair of N3Ns, a P-40, P-64 replica, Cessna O-1, Aeronca L-3 (all visitors from 2-3 neighboring states), a USAF-marked T-28, a freshly restored Bucker Jungmann (ex-Ernest K. Gann in its long time civil scheme), and about a half dozen local PT-13/17/N2S and the aforementioned Goose.

                                Many of the aircraft flew to a neighboring town, whose airport was having an open house, and participated in a standing and flour bombing contests. The J-3 won and (surprisingly) the Goose took second in the spot landing competition.

                                Yes, it was free to attend.

                                We now return you to the Spitfire channel...

                                There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

                                      1115hrs approx - As we walked the dogs on our 36th wedding anniversary a Spitfire flew quite sedately overhead from the SE, did a wide turn over St.Ives then headed back towards the SE. Unusual whistle (bit like the P-51 howl) as it flew over - couldn't see markings but thanks to the pilot for the impromptu anniversary flypast!!!

                                        Stearman and a low wing silver aircraft, possibly the Yale, being led around the sky by a Harvard a few minutes ago over Newmarket. Looked lovely from my office window.
