14th August
I was disappointed with the web site introducing the Silver Spitfire - see 4th August. The one page in which I had a continued interest has failed to work properly.

However, no problems with the excellent "Vintage Wings of Canada", who have a background piece on the aircrafts Canadian connections.

12th August
Click for latest PMFC magazine "Borne on the Wind".
Now available to non-club members.






10th August
The forecast wind strength means there won't be much model flying done today in the southern part of the country. The F3K comp at BMFA Buckminster has been cancelled because of this and I ended up at a garden centre instead.

Click the restaurent notice for some photos.

8th August
A BARCS Forum subject of "Fossil hunting in Bognor Regis" seemed unlikely but together with some fossil information it led to the Graham and David Woods web site, Favonius (ancient Roman personification of the west wind).

Click Favonius himself for links to a varied list of articles.

6th August
A new set of front page photographs - thanks to Mick for this group taken at the PMFC Rubber Bowden competition, which Mick won.

4th August
Bryan picked up this piece about the "Silver Spitfire" flying round the world.

Click the Spitfire for the, rather over the top, web site.


2nd August
Picked up from Slipstream that the GRANT MIMLOCT 2019 is tomorrow.
Click for full details on the Enlesslift.com web site.

Well down the above page is a link to the December 2015 PMFC magazine where the writer suggests "Scroll down to page 4 for an article on getting the most out of your Cloud Tramp by Andy Sephton."

31st July
Thanks to Stan you can click the heading for the August/September Slipstream.

A couple of links from the latest Aeromodeller that might be interesting.

The 8th single channel and retro r/c fly-in at Pontefract had a report and gave Phil and Shaun a mention.

Not much scope for Power Scale Soaring in the Peterborough area but the PSSA have recently re-vamped their web site and there are lots of quality photographs to be seen.

Click the Great Orme pic for more information.

23rd July
War Birds Fly-in and Beer Festival, BMFA Buckminster.

There were lots of different beers to try but at mid-day on the Sunday the beer hanger was empty with everyone out by the runway.

Latest Aeromodeller is now out. Andrew Boddington has given an excellent plug for Flying Aces.

In the reports Gary Catterick was given a mention with regard to photographs. Click for his album on Flickr. - Scroll down when you reach the page.

17th July
Picked this up from the BARCS Forum, not a great deal to do with model aircraft, although appreciation of down thrust is needed. Click the t/n for a video, would make a good start to Flying Aces at Ferry Meadows on Saturday, 31st August.

I was curious about the accuracy of these free stats programs,
so started them both on 29th May 2015 and will see if the results coincide.

ClustrMaps was first set up in October 2012, in March 2015 their
system stopped working but if you click the icon you will see the
results for that two and a half year period.
