So Sharon convinced me we needed to take the camper out for a shake down run.
We headed on up to the Black Rock desert last night to fly some planes.
The time is odd, because this week there is a huge festival they have there called 'Burning Man' Technically it starts on Sunday, but there was plenty of people going up early to get ready for it. For one week in August, 'Black Rock City', as they call it, becomes the third largest city in the state of Nevada.
Anyway, I ended up taking 5 planes up, and bringing 4 back in perfect working condition. Due to a mechanical failure, and me losing orientation on the plane, my fastest plane, the flying wing, ended up trying to dig a big hole in the playa. I've had a flying wing like my 'Zagi' for many years, so guess I'll have to make a new one this winter.
Just a few pics...
