The final shots of my old X-Air 56NE as I was taxying to take off last Saturday 16 March on my way to fly it up to its new owner in St-Aubin in the Vendée. I’m grateful to my pal Victor who took them while standing by to close the entrance to the airfield after I’d left.
The next thing will be to pull 28AAD, my Weedhopper, out of the barn so I can give it a good clean and readvertise it on Le Bon Coin. I’m going to do that later today and I’ll probably have a flight in it later on as today and tomorrow are both forecast to be warm, with the temperature reaching 20 degrees Celsius, and with a fairly light northerly wind on both days.
If I can sell it fairly quickly now the season is about to start and get the Kia back I’ll at last have my life back on track after all the disruption of the last couple of years. Keeping my fingers crossed 😉
Oh, and dammit, I’ve just gone ahead and ordered a new F.U.N.K.E ATR833S radio and cable set. The best price that I managed to find on the net was from www.fischer-flugzeugservice.de and as they seem to have both the radio and the cable set in stock (most suppliers don’t seem to have the cable set for some reason) I hope to receive both items very soon. If so, I should then be able to go ahead and replace the 25kHz Icom that I currently have in 77ASY with the shiny new 8.33kHz F.U.N.K.E before my planned UK flight at end April/early May. That’d be nice 🙂
