to fly on Dec 17?
On Dec 17, 1903 at 10:35 a.m.
Orville Wright flew the first powered flight in
the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, NC. That initial
flight lasted about 12 sec and covered a distance
od 120 ft. Wilbur and Orville flew the aircraft
three more times that day...
I am planning to commemorate the 100
year anniversary by flying. Anyone is welcomed to

If you parablend some lines this
will help you identify the lines you need.
Soooo instead of writing "I need the third line on
the C riser that is behind the 4 the line on A
riser on the inside of the left riser with the
small line on the right just in front of the brake
line that has the small strap attached to
it".....you just write "I need two AU."
Powered training with Sean and Matthew's first
flight - Nov 22/03
Since wind was weakening we have
decided to do forward assisted launch. All this
time Matt would always drift to his left on all
inflations and gradually fix the sideway motion
during his run. Therefore I have assumed that the
same would happen during our real try. Start the
engine, get ready, last set of instructions and
go! Glider comes up nicely, I yell go, go, but
Matt is not applying power. Matt, GO, GO, power up
I yell gain. WROOOOOOOOOOOM there it is. But
instead drifting to the left Matt is going to the
right???!! I am totally in his way!!! AAAAhhhhhh
how do get out? I think I have actually pulled off
a real ballet move, I twirled, jumped and spanned
at the same time.... Read more here

Nov 21/03 Second
flight at Bieda's -
After I took bunch of pictures for
Mr. Bieda a have decided to take XC flight to
check out Welland airport that is about 10 km
away. Here it is just past my foot. I was tempted
to land and say hi to Bruce who I spoke to on the
phone several times but it was getting cold and I
decided to turn back. It would have been fun
though. This picture almost looks like a situation
out of MS Flight simulator... Read more here.
