COLDSTREAM FLYERS CLUB NEWSLETTER – OCTOBER 2016
Well the September rain has played havoc with the plans of Aero Clubs and their events across several states. After all the hard work and efforts of the various members, Maryborough had to cancel their Wings and Wheels event and Kyneton has had to cancel their Air Show which a lot of flyers were really looking forward too.
The rain might have slowed aviating, but it has not stopped it. Tyabb Aero Club continue to have their Saturday BBQ and Shepparton hosted a Ladies day which was well supported for AWPA. A couple of planes headed to Oz-Kosh at Narromine and below is a first hand account from Nathan Hornsby, First Officer of Hornsby Airlines (8 years old).
On Friday the 7th of October dad and I went to the airshow that was at Narromine airport. Dad said to me “do you want to go to school or do you want to go flying” (Narromine here we come!!) we left Coldstream at 12.30pm and flew direct to Narromine to the airshow. The weather was FANTASTIC and we set up the pop up tent under the wing, Dad and I looked at all the airplanes. We catched up with Matt Wreford at about 6.00pm and had dinner at the flying club and dad had fish n chips and I had chicken schnitzel (YUMMY) and after that we were greedy and had 8 packet of chips to share and I had a chocolate bar (and dad and matt had lots of beer and they both were tipsy.) we went back to the ten and there were a lot of stupid mosquitos everywhere.
In the morning I woke dad up at 6.30much to his discust and we had some brekkie and had another look around. We stayed until the air display finished at 1.30pm and headed home. We landed at Coldstream Dad made three landings in one. (he needs a bit more practise)
Thanks dad and Matt for a great trip.
