Flying Competition at Warnervale from Making Time for Flying by Julien
I recently participated in a flying competition organised by the club at Warnervale aerodrome. Another pilot had already put his hand up for ferrying the Warrior from Bankstown for the day, so I decided to drive instead, Warnervale being about an hour drive north of Sydney. And since the weather forecast was good and we had not explored that corner of New South Wales yet, Nina and I decided to make a day trip out of it.

Flugsammlung Leo Junior at Hermeskeil, Germany from PPRuNe Forums by flugholm
Four days ago I visited the Flugsammlung Leo Junior at Hermeskeil in the Hunsrueck area. That's halfway between Frankfurt and Luxemburg. It's a private collection in the middle of nowhere. All aircraft arrived on the road, mostly after having made their last flight to Zweibr├╝cken or Saarbr├╝cken. (As is the case with many museums, obviously some of the aircraft suffer somewhat by being out in the open, but still it's an interesting museum!)
