hello. I ( with help from Patrick Normoyle) am holding a private fly in " muster in the mallee" for " Bush Flyers Down Under ." in August 11-12 here at my place.

 

Will be BBQ. Breaky , underwing camping. bonfire, live music ( by Jack Flyer) STOL, show'n'shine ( with my famous home made trophies that may or may not last the trip home?)

 

More details to come.

 

NOTE: strip is only 450 meters from fence to hangar. SO FLY IN AT OWN RISK

 

This is a non for profit event. No landing or camping fees however meals will be $10 per meal Inc softdrink tea and coffee.

Hmmm not one I'd be chasing, but then again it is all up to the individual on the day

And really I'm after nothing more than catching up with Tim but this time flying in instead of driving in

Getting in is no problem, that's what the fence is for, it's getting out that's the problem.... it's a way of adding to Flyerme's aircraft collection. 008_roflmao.gif.692a1fa1bc264885482c2a384583e343.gif012_thumb_up.gif.cb3bc51429685855e5e23c55d661406e.gif.Alan.

Valid point Guernsey, but!!!!!!! Jacky boy is not after modern day stuff like ours

He will probably just melt them down and sell the aluminium ingots and EBay the instruments

Scre80, fuel only is "he's Holmes" ha ha and that's elementary my dear boy.

 

Flyerme (Jacky). Thanks for offer for refueling. I plan to leave Penfield (near Sunbury Victoria) soon after first light, Wx 4cast and vis permitting, and reckon its a 3-4 hr trip so into your strip around 11am and overnighting.
