Jorj and I drove down to Canberra Friday for a bit of a fly over Lake George.
A strong South Easterly was blowing about 18-20 knots. Dave was waiting for us to give us the full tour.
Good view of the lake. The ridge runs 20 km to the north and the same to the South. Fun flying, plently of lift and plently of room to goof around. Dave was flying all the way out to the waters' edge and back...Jorj and I stayed closer to the ridge.
Cloudbase was quite low. i can imagine the deadly flying that could be done on a good day when you can go over the back and head XC toward Forbes...
I had an altercation with a territorial eagle. Cheeky buggers, considering how much larger my 'bird' is'!! It just went for my nose cone (they think the nose cone is the birds' head - in for the kill). No scars on my sail, thank God!
Jorj found it difficult to penetrate on the Fun 160 into the strong wind. She was a little bit envious of our performance...I think she might be thinking it's time for an upgrade :) She flew my LiteSport 3 yesterday at Stanwell and loved it. She was on top of everyone the whole flight.
