Bastien & Emil – antics at the site

HI all,

There was lots of excitement going around this weekend at Native Place as pilots gathered to make the most of the flying and celebrate Holi, the festival of colour which marks the seasonal change from winter to spring

The earlier week Dwane had flown 35 km  from Tower hill towards Shinde  on to Pawna  to finally land at Govitri ( a couple of km away from Native Place) whetting everyone’s flying  appetites

Bastien has been rocking the site with fun acro performances when pilots waited out the strong wind conditions and Emil’s posts like “A beautiful 3 hour 5 minute flight with some vultures yesterday, wingover practice mixed with French lessons by Bastien Langlois, a B-line stall, couple small collapses and one huge one, and then a rooftop BBQ dinne “  further added to the excitement

Don and Mayura came by too – Don has just acquired a new BGD Base and was eager to try out his new wing.

The flying conditions did not disappoint. Pilots enjoyed great conditions and flew back home to Native Place only to be splashed and drenched by Basti  who had an arsenal of colour ready for them
