Visited this Fly In yesterday. With it only being an hour or so from home, and the weather being particularly pleasant, we decided to take a look. The Blackpool & Fylde Club certainly have what surely must be one of the finest model flying sites I think I have ever seen, complete with it's large clubhouse and verandah, excellent parking facilities etc. The crowning glory were the bacon rolls at just a quid, along with tea and coffee at 50p per mug!

I shan't give precise details of exactly where the site is, as I don't feel that would be appreciated, but suffice to say it's an excellent place to fly.

A very varied selection of models were flown in the superb conditions yesterday, from a very large Fokker D6, powered by a nice Saito radial, to an extremely fast hotliner. It was worthy of note that probably as many as half the models were electric powered, including some quite large ones. In particular, there was an Avro Vulcan of about 8 foot span, with a single electric ducted fan. It flew on fourteen lipo cells, had retracts, and flew extremely smoothly (and quietly) for a ducted fan job. Nice. I also spotted  a nice Alliance F3a job. Unfortunately the owner seemed to be suffering more than a few issues with his (what looked like) a YS engine.

All in all, a great day at a superb site. Well done the Blackpool & Fylde Club!
