Avonds F15

F15 Fighter

We first saw this airframe at least 18 months ago when Dave Rogers brought it up to our Scale Day.  Dave was now entering the turbine owners club.  In his opinion it was in garish colours, pink, white, yellow. That would have to be changed!  With quite a few issues to resolve and not a lot of time to spend on it with life/work to contend with.  However, finally we get the nod that it is ready for it's maiden flight.  The Avonds F15 in now in a military scheme, nearest to US 65th Squadron (Aggressors).  Powered by a Jet Munts 140 turbine it really flew very scale.

A very sleek low profile fast jet, the Carf Ultra Flash.  This jet covers a lot of sky very quickly and makes for impressive viewing.  Here on the 30th August 2018 Jon runs up the Ultra Flash for two flights over the day.  During a break he took on the sticks of another jet for it's first flight, a F15.  The Ultra flash is acomposite airframe, air retracts and powered by a Jet Munts 140 turbine.

BVM Electra

BVM electra

From the BVM stables of turbine jets comes an electric composite fast jet in kit form or ARF.  On the 30th August on an excellent day weatherwise, John brought up the field his new BVM electra fast jet.  We were surprised as John has become a bit of turbine fanatic in the last few years. John handed over the maiden flight to Jon who gave it a test flight.  Fairly quiet as EDF's go but open up the throttle and it moves very quick.  Gives camera men a difficult time keeping it in focus and view.

Spitfire - Below the Radar?

Spitfire

A glorious May Saturday with pure blue skies and 22 degrees. A fairly big turn out of members too with some training getting done.  During an intermission the plan was to fly all the warbirds present at the same time. Unfortunately the FW190 did not fly due to the pilot brewing another cup of tea.  There were two Spitfires though, one a four stroke and a 40 size 2 stroke ready. Use them then and fly as wingleader and wingman. Things did not go to plan and the wingman dropped out early leaving the Spitfire MKII to strafe the runway at low level avoiding any possible radar contact..................
