Excellent pics Paul, thanks for sharing yes

A great set from Phil too, excellent day's flying, it all seems to be a blur of adrenaline now though.

I'm glad you all enjoyed my left of field look at life. I wrote it a few days ago whilst listening to Lou Reed's Transformer Album - much recommended. Sorry if I missed anyone out.

I was thinking that next time we could squeeze Rocket Ron inside the fuselage of the Antonov and fly it to Conway mountain and back? Only joking of course - Snowden...doh...

Seriously though it was one of the best PSS days I can remember. Nearly finished the JP. Looking forward to starting the Sabre.

I think I get it now! laugh

Yes, great camera work by a truly talented photographer and a very dramatic edit!

Very impressive watching the rain approaching through the mountains and so glad it missed us, on several occasions.

Excellent write up by Pete too. An interesting peek into his mind and inner musings. How deep does the rabbit hole go? yes

Great days flying to end the planned season. You know it's been a good day when the TX battery is nearly flat and the model timers have clocked up a healthy tally!

Now for the "impromptu" season. yes

Right then you lot, as per recent years, I'll be heading to the Orme for a New Year's Eve and/or New Year's Day slope session. I'll make a weather call on my attendance a day or so before - I'm happy to go up in the motorhome in less than excellent weather though, waiting for clear patches - you guys may or may not want to do the same, so please come to your own conclusions on that.

We've had some great days to round the year out and break the new one in over the years, so hope to see you there!

P.S. Don't forget to sort your BMFA insurance (along with all your other registration stuff as necessary).

 

Edit to add - Shona and I will cook bacon sarnies and supply hot coffee from the motorhome for those with sore heads (yes I'm looking at you Mr Gilder!)

I've been keeping an eye out for your announcement Andy!

Missed last year as I had Flu, but I've had a jab this year to make sure I'm fit.

Fingers crossed for some flyable conditions!

I'm in if you'll all put up with me again! laugh Excellent way to end/start the year!

I would also like to add, if nobody minds, that everybody is welcome to come and fly with us, or even just come and watch especially if you've never flown or seen PSS stuff fly before. The models are stunning, the company entertaining and the Orme, well the Orme is very special! yes
