My blog is still in recovery mode, after I missed posting last Saturday… some days you just run out of gas!
Yesterday, I went into Woodstock on the motorcycle, as I needed to pick up a metric sized little screw that I needed as I lost one on the valve of our fire in a can. I did find the right screw!
While driving out to the hardware store, I saw a sign indicating that there was a “Free Airshow” out at the Model Airplane Club in the afternoon. Right up my alley! Off I went! You only have to invite me once to something like that.
They had quite a few people out to catch all the action… it was a beautiful afternoon.
They had some real nice planes out yesterday, and quite a few of them got up in the air! They make a fair bit of noise, as they are mostly gas powered, unlike mine which are all battery powered.
Check out the John Deere special below…
Lots of planes, and I got a chance to talk “shop” with a few of the owners… very enjoyable.
There even was a helicopter at the show but it never made it in the air while I was there… rats!
Here is a nice low level pass… only had my LG Smartphone one me, so all the pics today are from it… which is not the greatest for action shots.
They had all kinds and shapes of planes out at the show…
Today things were steaming at 7:00 a.m. Yikes… I decided to take a ride this morning up to Kitchener/Waterloo area, as I wanted to check out two airplane shops up there… ya never know what you will come across that you need!
Grand River Hobbies is a great store on Courtland Ave.
This is a serious little Hobby Car parked out front of the store… got to watch the Toronto Indy yesterday on the TV, this thing probably could have won the race after all the big cars crashed!
Made it home by 1:30, and all I did was head to the pool with Judy and Kristina… yup, no baby yet!
