Taxiing back after the first test hop … Pretty excited at this point as it had lifted a full 4′ off the ground and flown beautiful straight and amazingly steady … Brought back all my memories of the Stampe .. Very similar
Taxiing into the club and a pre planned de brief with Graham, Bob and Bob and Peter from Channel Island Aero Services .. It was hard to stop the trial hops but a sensible stop point to check all was still tight secure and looking good.
Guy at the club took these amazing shots … Yellow against that sky … Probably a full 10 seconds after take off
She flies just straight off the plan ! and out of the workshop
That smile that means .. She flies !!
How do you hug a ‘plane ! just climbed out and elated
… Very elated !
