      As has been happening a fair bit lately, our weather guru Mr Moose esq. worked his magic yet again & picked us another perfect fly day.

      When the action got under way around 10:00am the sun was shining (although still slightly chilly) and the wind was non existent. A perfect day for Kermit to maiden his “Big Whitie” (his name not mine)

       

      and his Wilga -“Blue Boy”

      Needless to say, with Kermit in the pilot seat, both maidens went off without a hitch.

      Other than that there was a good roll-call today with Andrew & Stephen joining the usual players of Moose, Gerald, Kermit & myself.

      I had one less than perfect landing with the Stearman biplane (and knocked the wheels off-again) but other than that the day was incident free with everyone enjoying multiple flights all morning till the wind started to pick up around noon as we were enjoying the usual BBQ lunch.

      A couple more flights in the wind after lunch & it was time to pack up for the day.

      In the words of Porky Pig “That’s All Folks”

        Very nice Mr Frog, nice tight editing. Definitely in the running for GMA.

        And in record time, Moose can have an early night.

        Well done, I enjoyed that.

        Thank you Moose! I am honoured to win the prestigious GMA.

        But I must thank Kermit for making it possible, without his flying skills and video editing lessons I could have never have done it.

      A worthy recipient for the GOLDEN MOOSE AWARD indeed   IT  just goes to show that  a first class  studient from the TOP GUN FLIGHT SCHOOL and TGFS  VIDEO  section   can achieve the famous GMA title with a little help from the experts
