These days he is fairly busy at work and his appearances at Indoor are getting to be quite rare. So it was with much pleasure and excitement that he, once again, entertained us with his brilliant heli flying. Do you know, dear readers, age, and I am speaking of senior years, make it a little difficult to follow Hamish's model movement as they are  so rapid and precise. Thank you once again Hamish. It was pleasing to see that you also had time to speak to a couple of...
