Blackbushe Saturday 16th May 2015

The weather held for this years show, although there were the odd spots of rain on the way to Blackbushe the day brightened up nicely, the early strong cross wind gradually dropping as the day progressed….  Schedule
Steve Holland opened the show this year flying his 66% scale Aerokot. Its a 4m span biplane based on a Bucker Jungmeister, with a DA150 petrol engine.

Steve flew a nice routine sliding the biplane against the heavy cross winds on slow circuits and on his landing approach.
Following a helicopter slot by the Kaos heli team there was a Mixed Jet slot starting with a Starfighter … (I always think of Colonel Bud Marconi now) an F16, Typhoon and Steve Prideaux with his BVM Bandit.

Following an absence from Blackbushe last year Steve and Matt Bishop were back, this year flying their Krill model Avanti S jets and this was the first time they had flown together at a show. They demonstrated some interesting manoeuvres with these vectored thrust enabled jets.

Another nice return to the show was Ali Machinchy who didn’t fly last year following his move to Horizon Hobbies. Always great to see Ali fly and give informative commentary on his aircraft.

There was another good turn out of PAM members at the show, Woody and Smithy were the big spenders buying a couple of Specktrum DX6’s.

Looks like Andy’s trying to get Woody to by the ice creams again, guess his wallets in there somewhere.
