I am so gutted that I couldn't get the time off work to come along. I was all excited when Dave met me after Sister Act on the Saturday afternoon and said it was on, then I looked at my diary and realised it was impossible.

Still I am made up for you Andy. The pictures and the video all tell the story.

I hope to see it again next year at the Orme again.

Andy - well done - bloomin marvellous! You must be over the moon - I dont think she's big boned - just beautifully proportioned!

The air shots are stunning - so realistic!

Dave - love the way you have shown the "journey" on your video - from start, through hard work to a wonderful flying finish!

I'm sure that a Pucara is not 1/10th the size of an A10 though....!

Well done all round - inspirational!

Only just caught up with all this. Magic Andy! Really pleased it went well. How much wind was there?

54mph on the ridge for the maiden, got down to 40mph at one point, but lots of lift.

I reckon she'd get away ok with 30ish on the Orme too.

I've also only just caught up with this - looks brilliant. And, you did a maiden flight in 50+ mph? Impressive!

Hi Andy,
Yup felt nice and safe for a machine of this weight. The only worry to me was the man handling down to the lower ledge through some impressive compression on the edge. Thankfully had a great team of guys that nursed the big Hog through it and off into the blue.

Hope to have her on song at a few PSSA meets this year if you are about?
