This week saw the largest number of fliers at Hengrove.  with the hospital now completed, the large mound of rubble and earth has been taken away and replaced with top soil. The exceptional weather brought out the senior members.  some pictures are included.

Ivors new engine mounted in his plane note the nice 17 inch wood prop

Notice now the prop is broken, wonder why/, well unfortunately Ivor cought three of his finfers in the spinning prop.  Quite a nasty way to cut your nails. 

On a more serious note, always be careful when removing your hands from around the front engine end of planes, only this week the BMFA hilighted this

very potential hazard.

BE WARNED, BE CAREFUL
