    Guess The Airstrip

    I’m just annoyed because I feel that I should recognise it!

    AAAA fly-in Echuca...gathering of Austers

    Was a great lineup. My wheel was at the front where it should be, but I only came to look. Thanks for the pics. 🙂

    RAAus to disclose member details

    Landed and stayed at Clare Valley in January. A great clubhouse and a great district for visitors.

    No harm in circuit calls if the channel is not congested. It’s easy to tell whether you are fighting for airtime.

    As a young bloke with about 150 hours I landed after dark using crossed headlights and a car at the other end to aim for. Trouble was they had to cut a gate chain to get in at the behest of Flight Service following my distress call so I got properly reamed out afterward. It was a perfect landing too, wasted on my three pax.

    Strange how it just floated along, must have had too many revs at idle.

    Having done stalls and spins as part of GA training many years ago I can remember nothing scary about them. They were lots of fun. The key was knowing that the aeroplane was designed for it and wouldn’t break and that you had heaps of height to recover. I would happily do them today ina suitable aeroplane.

    Can’t find it. Looks like a nice build, but fuselage a bit boxy.
