With the school holidays just beginning we have had many young visitors admiring the gliders. Jeremy and Sandy from Melbourne were in awe of the Jet Caproni while Geoff's grandchildren Adam and Mia are keen to become pilots just like Poppy.

Don had a busy day in the J160 flying with Julian and Jan. Bob's all ready for the season ahead after completing his check flight with Eddie in IUH. Great to see Graham who flew in for a cuppa on his way to Echuca. After spending the afternoon soaring Grant had plenty of helpers (Tim, Rolfe, Eddie and Ralph) when it came time to put his glider to bed!

Tim, recently back from holidaying overseas called in today to take Ralph flying in the Maule. Tim can hardly wait for his next holiday which will be in Tocumwal of course - gliding and no doubt showing off his skills on the BBQ. Last season Tim's culinary expertise was only surpassed by his flying skills!

A warm day with the mercury reaching 29 degrees. Yes Summer is definitely on the way. Mark's new Savannah drew admiring glances from Phil and Greg while Eddie couldn't resist taking it for a fly. Don went flying with Glyn in the J160. Ralph settled passenger Cameron into the IS28B2. Cameron had a fantastic flight and will be back for more!!

Dave spent a pleasant day in blue conditions with three long flights. He is now heading up to the Northern Territory for a month or so. Tom a glider pilot is converting to ultralights. He didn't want to come down as the conditions were perfect.
Three wise men???

Eddie, celebrating his birthday today reports that all is going well in Benalla. Ed is attending the Basic Airworthiness course held there and says that it is excellent. Night times have been a bit chilly in the caravan though - missing his electric blanket or possibly his wife no doubt!!
Thanks Hana for the great photo

The Condor is now loaded and ready for departure to Japan. What great memories we have of that wonderful day when Ingo soared above Tocumwal on the Condor's first flight after restoration by Mike and the team of gliding enthusiasts.

Mark, proud owner of the recently completed (and long awaited!!) home built Savannah flew in to say hello. What an achievement!! Just love the colour. Mate Greg, along with son Russell also flew in to celebrate Marks' achievement.
Sunday continued to be an eventful day with Don and Jan keeping the J160 busy.
Dave enjoyed soaring in his LS4 even though it was a bit rough at times. At present he is finishing the day with a flight in the SportStar.
Great to see Johannes, Jutta and grand-daughter Nadine this morning.
