Saturday at the Hall.

Post by BOLLO » Sun Nov 24, 2013 12:17 am

Hello all.After a few years of trying to get a half decent shot of a WB 57 today I finally got some.Due to him slipping departure by 24hrs due to the high cross winds down Lajes I made the early trip down the Hall to see what I could get.Arrived just after 7.30 as it was said it would be a 8am departure but did not move until well after 9am[no quiet hours waiver??] weather was not good but better than what was forecast over night but I'm happy with how it went especially has he took the under run via echo.Here are a few from the day,thanks for looking .

Hi

Nice set of pictures, with them using a Snoop callsign on the RC's maybe they should use Droop as the callsign for the WB, with wings like that :P
Thanks for sharing
