Dh Venom

The annual Jet Day earlier was postponed due to poor weather conditions and was given the new date of September 23rd.  Generally a bright blue sky but with a "breezy" crosswind howling in from the SSW.  However, this time we were not to be beaten and all pilots got at least two flights in.  Due to crosswind though some members decided to stay away so numbers were down a little.  We had a few edf foamies of which only five flew, the classic F86 of Dave R burned out it's speed controller again, but we had the sight of two Me 163 Komets flying in formation - sort of!

Jets actually flown were two turbine sport jet models plus a Bae Hawk, De Havilland Venom, F9F Panther and Jiri's new L39 Albatros.

 Below are the highlights of the Wimborne MAC EDF & Turbine Jet Day - runtime 25mins
