Sad day this week … Monday 11th was Dads funeral ..
As Dad was THE one who got me so into all things aviation it seemed a fitting thing to have both a ground and airborne tribute to him …
Positioned the ’plane from Priory Farm to Rougham having emailed fhem a few days ago to request permission to land and then return for the funeral fly by.
The day didnt start well as my Trig radio …. that hadnt missed a beat in 5 years of flying … decided to pop a message saying ”No radio” … i tried the usual off and on and even a quick circuit but no luck … i called the boys to catch them to drop by with the Icom handheld … this didnt work too well on readability at Rougham but got me in
later investigation and , in the fading light, i could see that the second radio head, in the front cockpit wasnt illuminated … traced it to a bad connector that probably got disturbed when i did the annual
Returned a couple of days later and stripped each heat sealed cover and re crimped
