Z-bird through a Gate


Picture and comment from Zenith builder in Poland.

Comment by Janusz Tichoniuk on October 8, 2014 at 1:38pm

Two weeks ago we have had annual amateur aviation championship in Lomza (here). This year was 15th anniversary and my first time there. One of the competitions is flying through a gate. Initially the gate is like eleven meters wide, one by one we fly through, if you break the tape (from which the gate is made) you miss the next round. Each next round the gate is narrower.  At the finals horizontal width is usually smaller than your wingspan but still some manage to go through.  I am flying that plane but the glory goes to my instructor sitting next to me, who made it to the final (when the picture was taken I was just after my first ever solo flight).

BTW, usually horizontal tapes are broken, not vertical ones.


Experimental Interior

Here's an idea for an airplane interior.  This builder wrote, "the biggest bonus was how quiet it made the airplane, almost spooky quiet."  It also protects the skin. This is a non-woven polyester fabric called Spectorpile. It weighs .094 lbs per square foot and has no backing. It is cut to fit and put on with 3M spray adhesive. This is from the Zenith builder's forum.



Humboldt Bay Eagles

Eagle activity is over for the season, but the nest hosts other critters.  Here's a link to our world famous flyers and superb parents, Mr. & Mrs. HBE.
