I was invited to attend a rather spiffing field in Cumbria today and had some top fun with my mate Euan...

...Wahey and lands on the strip...Top Banana  :uk:

...but following the days flying and a bit of post flight checkery, I've found my rudder and fin are damaged so I've taken the opportunity to strip off the film covering, added gussets at 'weak points' and taken off the 'aerodynamic counter balance tab' from the rudder and added it to the fin in an attempt to avoid any future hang ups from the line, I reckon it was an accident waiting to happen.
looking forwards to the next time, what a fab site and facilities.

Damn i must have missed you as i was with the family today.

I say that because i am sure the tug looks the same as the one i saw there when I dropped in.
