Where have you been? What have you seen?
Apologies for a link to my photos, but it will save so much repetition.
Just back last night from a couple of days flying around some lovely strips in the Maule along with Ian in his C180 (Grumpy Old Pilot for those who remember him on here).
With the price of fuel, at least strip flying lets you get plenty of landings and enjoyment in without having to go too far!
Hope you enjoy the pics: http://goo.gl/k3dLD
What a great expedition. Easy 'local' flying, but several new worlds en route, I bet. Marvellous.
And tempting. How much are those Carbon Cubs, again...?
Looks a lot of fun! Makes me wish I still owned the Jodel, and that I'd been in Devon rather than flying home from America.
The common unit of measurement is called the "Maule", and the answer is about 10 Maules!
It seems very apt for a 180 flown by a Heavy Kiwi!
AF 'Mauled' me on the way to Coventry once. Quite outstanding. Especially in the 'hover'.
Ten times? Maybe five.
But I do like the look of those new Carbon Cubs better. I saw the Irish demo-er at Sywell the other week. Quite smitten.
Yes, being down there brought back many happy memories of that fabulous Flyer Forum strip trip to Devon back in 2007. Yes over 5 years ago ! Along with Keef, Adrian, GOP, Dave Berger, FD Frank, Jane et al.

I think we were paying around 89p/litre for Avgas back then and moaning about it!!
I saw the Carbon Cub at Sywell too, a real Cub on steroids! I know Frank was smitten with it as well, especially as he is now Cub sized !
Maybe Adrian, Steven and Frank should get one as a group between them! Based between, Glos, Dav, Lyon and Wisconsin !
