R22 takes to the sky

On Good Friday 2016 I met up with Ioan at the Alcaston site as it looked to be the best day of the Easter weekend.  Turned out we were right as we had a cracking morning in bright sunshine.


I decided to take my R22 out for a rare flight.  The model had been in the previous owner's loft for over 10 years when I got it and Kalt, the company that made the mechanics have been out of business for some years.  This means that once pranged, it is unlikely to fly again.

Ioan had his video camera and bravely tried to track the R22 whilst flying.  I do have to say that he had a lot more success with this model than the Mini Titan!
