LMAC - Warbird Themed Day confirmed for Sunday 20th July 2014

We're delighted to announce that the LMAC Warbird themed day has been confirmed for Sunday 20th July 2014 and all LMAC members are very welcome to bring their Warbirds (old and new) to display or fly. More details to follow, but add the date to your diaries and get those warbirds ready!

Although the day has set aside as a Warbird themed day, this in no way restricts you flying none Warbirds.

We look forward to see plenty of Warbirds on display on Sunday 20th July!

Flying action from Sunday 4th May 2014

Well the weather for the first May Bank Holiday long weekend has been kind to us so far with many LMAC members making the trip to the immaculate looking flying site.

Howard Murphy shares the first set of the weekend showing the action under the blue skies.  Click on the left and right arrows to scroll through the pictures or alternatively click on the link below to go to the complete set page.  I'm sure many of you will have smart phones and tablets, so if you haven't already, download the free Flickr App from the iTunes and Android Store and you can follow the Leicester Model Aero Club directly through the App.

The second set is from Matt Chamberlain with some shots of the Spitfire taken by Dan Simmonds. The Spitfire flight is a tribute to the late Dennis Belleini who previously built and owned the Kyosho Spitfire. Ironically as we found out later in the day; today actually marks the anniversary of Dennis's death so how fitting that today should be the first time this Spitfire has flown. We hope Dennis was looking down with a smile on his face. :)
