Inaugral Drifter Breakfast


Recommended Posts

g'day guys


my lil WB-582 has settled down nicely at Roadvale (it's a 6nm flight to Boonah) and apart from some minor sorting she is coming along nicely


i haven't seen such a thing as a Drifter event so i put it to the members of the Flying Tigers at Boonah today (at the meeting) and they have agreed to host an annual Drifter/Fisher get-together, with moi as the organiser 010_chuffed.gif.c2575b31dcd1e7cce10574d86ccb2d9d.gif


to avoid the hassles associated with a 'fly-in' the event will be run simply as a breakfast for Drifter/Fisher pilots - if you want to make a weekend of it you are welcome to camp overnight, either in the hangar or under the wing keen.gif.9802fd8e381488e125cd8e26767cabb8.gif


inaugral event is set for the first saturday of spring, when all Drifters will be shaking their wings in anticipation of some sweet flying - the date is Saturday 6th September


aircraft other than Drifters/Fishers will be awarded temporary Drifter status for the day ;)


please spread the word, we want to see as many Drifters and Fishers at Boonah on the day as possible


cheers for now

Drifter Get-Together


g'day guys


little reminder that the inaugral Drifter Breakfast is now only two weeks away, date is Saturday 6th September, at the Flying Tigers clubhouse @ Boonah Airfield, 0800 on 098_welcome.gif.81ff07d492568199326e4f64f78d7bc6.gif


all aircraft and Drifter devotees welcome, come along and see the biggest collection of Drifters on the planet (well maybe not this year, but there will be quite a lot - in future years this will be THE Drifter event in Oz) 010_chuffed.gif.c2575b31dcd1e7cce10574d86ccb2d9d.gif

:sad:Sorry Boleropilot, I was planning to come over for a look in a full bodied Drifter (schools tecnam) but bugger, flying has been cancelled today due wind. Oh well maybe next time.

wot a blowout


hey JimG no problem m8, even the birds had problems today


we watched a magpie trying to make headway at one stage, he stopped flapping for a few seconds and started flying backwards !!!!!!!!!


the big wave clouds being generated over the range kept blowing in across the 'field, right up to 1700 hours it was still blowing 20 knots plus and we regularly saw 30+ during the day (i left 455 tied down at the field, couldn't get her home)


i actually flew in from Roadvale at 0745 and had a lovely little flight, not long after that it all turned to XXXXe


better luck for next year is the plan, in 2009 it will be the last saturday in september


look for an article on The Inaugral Drifter Hurricane in the RAA mag soon


hope to see ya's all in 2009 !!!
