  • The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, January 2015

    INDOOR STARTED AGAIN IN JANUARY 2015. Dear Readers, Over the last couple of months, I have been moaning and groaning regarding the lack of fliers, lack of income which meant Michael and Model Flight had to make up the short fall for the monthly rent. As the gorgeous lady who presents information for Ford Finance says, "This is true."  Now, I hope, we have entered a new world with larger numbers of happy fliers. Personally it gave me a huge lift to have the Jacobsen family join us , and please permit me to itemise even further, and make special mention of Shaun. It seems that  for quite a number of years I have had the pleasure of following Shaun's model flying career in a somewhat mild, "behind the wings" manner, and as I had been moving in different circles , lost track over the last couple or more years.  So it was with great pleasure that I welcomed him to our magnificent Indoor Flying venue on Thursday, the 15th of January. My fi...

    The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, November 2014
    INDOOR AT ETSA IN NOVEMBER 2014 Although our numbers were down, yet again, those who came to fly were gifted with the entire Stadium space for at least the last hour of our allotted time. Whilst I am not telling you a lot about the fliers, I am concentrating this month, more on the boxes of models with which Mike O'Reilly armed himself this month. They made quite a picture when the boxes were opened to reveal such models as a B-17G Flying Fortress. To stir up your memory after such a long break, "Enola Gay" was the Fortress that dropped the first Atomic bomb...

    The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, October 2014
    WE FLY THROUGH OCTOBER INDOOR Although we were down a little on numbers on October 16th, it was none-the-less an enjoyable evening for all who were able to attend, and by half way through our scheduled flying time, all the "leedies" had departed and left us with the entire stadium. We welcomed Michael O'Reilly home after he and Janine had spent a quite lengthy time in foreign countries. I shan’t repeat details as they appeared in my September episode and, apart from that, I am inclined to "go all funny" with envy. Let it suffice, or begin, by saying that my first picture is of a very small quad that he flew that night. Too small for me - I couldn't see it when it sat on the desk...

    The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, September 2014
    Our last Indoor night at the Netball Stadium had a couple of surprises. Firstly, we were missing a number of usual fliers and secondly, after just ten minutes we had the entire stadium at our disposal until Hugh, the Duty Manager decided that he should save some of the huge expense that is entailed through having the big lights on throughout the stadium. My first picture this month is of Anthony Steele who, each month, makes the utmost use of whatever flying time is available and you see him, setting up some of his models, prior to his night's flying. His models are always magnificently presented with multi coloured L.E.D.'s adorning them and making quite a spectacular use of his air time...
