There were some nice aircraft to be seen at the show including a Stirling bomber, a deHavilland Mosquito and a Spitfire. A few jets put in an appearance with a Rookie, Kangaroo, Boomerang and an F16 flown very realistically by its skillful pilot. The electric slot was well over subscribed so the time allocation was doubled, electric gliders and slower craft first, followed by the faster EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) jets and other fast craft. That included me with the Pico-Jet.

deHavilland Mosquito built and flown by Roger Kellow
Rogers Mozzie developed a problem during flight in that the undercarriage failed to lock down, but was able to recover from the situation and landed safely. Well done Roger.
Also impressive was a helicopter built by Kim Johns. Now helicopters leave me cold, I just can't get interested yet I feel compelled to watch in case it starts heading this way in an uncontrolled manner. But this was different. Modified and developed to accept a gas turbine, it was flown expertly by Mark Milne and performed just like a full sized helicopter. Even the sound and smell was the same. I'm told its the only one of its kind in the world - very impressive.
