I've taken lots of photos of Peter Smart's Beriev in the past ... but a couple more won't do any harm!

Flight judge, Laurence looks on in the first.

Bryan Lea with his Citabria.

There was duration model activity too, but it did seem to be down in numbers to me.

Terrific shots, Russ- thanks for taking and sharing them! You have a great photographer's eye I reckon.  
(And that first portrait of Ivan is so sharp I nearly cut my eyeballs looking at it.)

Looks like a great day.  Too far for me to go.  I have flown Coupe there a few times - landed next to the pub, over the railway line, on one occasion.   Grin

What is the Derek Knight Auster - plan or kit?

I'm sure he said he originally intended it for the AM/MA designs comp, so presumably it's a plan from one or other of those sources. It's an Auster Taylorcraft V I think.

 Grin  hi everybody I went flying with my dad, baby brudder and grandpaw this weekend twice!  it was fun  grandpaw brought a box of planes and when he or dad launched them we would chase them and carefully bring them back.  there were lots of neat flights.  afterwards we played on the swings and went down the secret bumpy trail.  we also flew a kite the day it was windy.  the planes got wrecked but grandpaw doesn't care. they served honorably, entertaining grandkids.

love jonah and kier

That was fun I bet. Good on you kids - you will have to start building planes for Grand Pa soon.

Here's a link to some more nice photos and a bit of a write up by Danny Fenton on another forum...

https://www.aeromodellers.co.uk/forum/modelflying-events-news/32924-dreaming-spires-port-meadow-2017

Incidentally, I'm not sure why his nicely flying, enlarged KK Piper Family Cruiser (Gasparin 300 powered) doesn't feature on the score sheet I posted.

CORRECTION: Not Danny Fenton, but Chris Brainwood. I talked to Chris at Oxford and all the time thought he was Danny. Not sure how that happened in my head. Apologies to both!
