Tailspin - where is the "beesmis en gras" on the undercarriage? Or are you not doing those type of landings / take-offs anymore?

(She looks great - and from what you told me the other day - also flies great!) (^^)

Good morning,

On Saturday myself and Tank routed to one of Tank's friends farm in Korster,well about 7 miles past the town of Korster :mrgreen:

Total distance = 135 miles
Total flying time = 2hrs 45min

Must say it was an awesome flight there and back.We hit a 10 to 15 mph headwind going and the same heading back to Crosswinds ##

Since there was no runway,we landed in an open field some couple miles from the farm house puff

Couple pics of the day...
