Weather was glorious..Organisation superb. REALLY superb. Tugging (oooeer) relentless, gallons of fuel burnt. Some really nice models. Met new people and reacquainted with old faces. One or two unfortunate incidents involving model meeting terra ferma in a more vertical manner than intended-- Including a 4metre ASH 26 that brought a whole new classification to Vne, and planting. The few trees reached out and grabbed a couple too. Including this tug...thirty feet up! Yours truly tried to resurrect his world famous (well in my house when I was about ten) tree scrambling skills, but proved to be too difficult. owner later got it down, with some ingenuity and nails.
