Firstly may I apologise for not updating last month but family circumstances deemed I did not have much free time on my hands. I did however get to a few events and have some photos I also have some photos courtesy of Rodney Kee of North Downs' Fly-in which I couldn't attend and Matthew Poots has kindly given me permission to use photos from the IMAC event at Newbuildings. Thanks chaps it's much appreciated.
The Causeway Coast MFC had a Fly-in which I attended and had a few flights at a very enjoyable day and one that brings back lots of good old memories to me it was nice to fly there again after such a long period.
My own club The Buzzards MFC decided to have an end of season fly-in on the 21st of September and it was a great success lots of people, lots of models, always something in the air and as usual we put on the BBQ and no one went home hungry, how many people were there we don't know but we went through 2 boxes of 48 burgers each and a box of sausages so it must have been over 100 in attendance, the weather was absolutely fantastic which just made the day. We had never had a Jet at the site before and were suprised when 3 turned up and all flew together for one flight, Seamus O'Donnel, Stuarty Porter and Stephen Brown all in formation (a video is inluded below of that not to be missed), Rodney Kees flew some lovely 3d with his Helicopters. The Buzzards would like to thank you guys for the demo flights you put on and to all who came and made it a memorable day.

Below are some photosof North Downs Fly-in, The Causeway Coast Fly-in, IMAC and The Buzzards Fly-in, for your perusal
