These pictures are of the Beeston flying club where i first flew and learnt to fly,
sadly this club no longer exists as the rugby club needed more and more time to play
rugby (American football for morons). You can see me in the picture above on my bicycle,
to the left is my instructor (left) with a friend (right) who was also learning to
fly at the time. To the right is a photo of the site taken from an aircraft.
This is the Trent MFC flying site situated at Nottingham race course, we have a large
grass expanse to fly over, the only obstructions being the various goal posts scattered
around the field.Also subsidence is making the take off landing area ever hillier.
Above is taken from the pits looking out over the flying area and left is the pits
area. We can fly most of the time assuming the field isn't being worked on.
The site above is behind Nottingham Racecourse in Colwick Park I fly off this lake
three weekends a year at waterplane events organised by the British Waterplane
Association. Many people attend these events from all over the country and a steadily
growing number of Trent members now have waterplanes. Below right is the rescue boat in the backup operational mode after the outboard motor ran out of fuel.
This is the LMA's waterplane site, it is situated at Billings in Northampton. I fly
here throughout the year the first Sunday of each month. Left is a general shot of
the pits area and right is Jim's Sunderland on its take off run and above is a view of the pits area from the rescue boat.
Below is me at one of the lleyn peninsula slope soaring flying sites overlooking
Hells Mouth in North Wales and right is a view from the same place of Hells Mouth.
Above is Rolls Royce Model Flying Club i fly here mainly on a Sunday afternoons it
has an excellent concrete runway to fly off. The club holds many events.
