Really looking forward to it. I've been in previous years and it is always a lot of fun. Taking my grandson this year and it should be a great day for us both.

 

Hope you get the best of weather - it can be quite variable this time of year. Most predictable weather is mid to late Autumn.

You do know don't you David, that even though it's a C185, when it's on floats, it hasn't got a tail wheel? Well, not one that works, that is....

What the ... bugga ... they are my favourite wheels ... LOL

BTW SA, you haven't seen my hold offs, they fit tail wheels to C172s and C182s just for me ... ROFL.

I heard that Bruce told Tecnam about you and I, and that's why they've put tailskids on their aircraft.
