Scale Day 25th Oct 2015
Well ……… who would have thought it! Not only was the place crowded with models but thronged with people and so many cars that the parking places were filled to overflowing and were being turned away at the gate meaning many spectators WALKED to the field! The weather Gods were smiling, pleasant wind strength and lots of sunshine.
Here’s a view of the spectators from the pits in the late morning – and there were more to come.
A great photo from Raj showing some of the huge number of visitors that we had on scale day in October 2015.

Luskintyre Oct 2015
If you have only flown on our WRCS field and never at Luskinyre you will notice quite a difference! Luskintyre is home to a full size aeroplane club consisting principally of Tiger Moths – there’s about 14 of them. This means it is big, flat and grass – it looks like this from the back of the hangers. You have got to really try if you want to finish up in the trees!
I got there early Friday afternoon and already there were many “gazebos” erected to shelter both relaxing pilots and planes from what promised to be a hot and sunny weekend.
