The last Friday in July has become a regular display for the club at Drumlough outside Rathfriland. On again the weather held out wonderfully well to allow us to put on almost two hours of a display including 3D Heli flying by Dave Nolan with his Furion 600 and the Electric Whiplash 90 size, we’ll not go into detail as to why the second Heli had to come out, suffice to say that when the grass has already been cut it doesn’t need done again! But as always Dave put on a great display.
Also on show we’re Sean & Alistair with the strykers, which fortunately did not meet each other the way they did at the same display two years ago.
As always the Toffee bomber was popular with children of all ages and a total of eight drops saw the bombsights well zeroed in and the squeals of delight as the sweets dropped confirmed that they were reaching their targets, although some of the squeals may have been shock and surprise as some of the toffees landed on folks having their BBQ.
Gerald Magivern also brought along his Quadcopter equipped with GPS and a GoPro camera which captured some great shots and video of the display.
As always the folks at Drumlough showed us great hospitality with a sirloin each for our trouble and a fireworks display to round off the evening, although we had to have the last word, with a quick flight from an EPP Flash equipped with as many LED’s as it was able to carry, so if you hear reports of UFO’s around Rathfriland never let on!
