On Friday and Saturday evenings many of the aircraft owners took the opportunity to fly their machines in the silky smooth air, and I enjoyed watching them going round on many sorties while drinking back a few beers, I met many old friends and made many new ones.
There were quite a few shadows converted to single seat enjoying the privileges SSDR provide, one such gentleman was Pete Eichhorn who's beaming smile can be seen on page 28 of September MF magazine. Pete like GSAL decide to be at Enstone late Thursday evening ready for Friday, we were the only two present so we invited him to join us for supper, he helped us repair our old generator and was a welcome friend over the whole weekend. Another person I'd spoken with on many an occasion was Brian Fallows and he came by road with his trike, we talked about Briggs & Stratton tuning and the various options to produce a reliable alternative four stroke engine. Brian demonstrated his engine and trike and also let others fly his precious machine.
Can't wait to see what turns up for 2017!
