Johanns E-Mig goes sloping.

Todays flying was a bit of a hiss and mit. We started by going to Slipper, but got rained out on the way there. But as we are "DIE HARD" fans....the movie is showing on TV as I type... :-)... we sat in the rain waiting for it to clear, until Markus phoned and said ..."come to Maitlands, the wind, ....the wind, .....the wind ... is blowing!!....Markus, well done on operating your phone while flying!! So by the time we dropped the key off at the Nature Conservation office and got to the sshlope,.......the wind turned to SSE and dropped at a fast rate. We then turned to our electric Migs for help. Johann flew his plane with passion!! I joined him and we flew formation. Looked beautifull, and we drew a crowd at the same time without knowing it. Unfortunately the photographer was one of the pilots so we could'nt get any stills. JL Productions' video camera operator.......was the other pilot. We put on a good show for the audience and flew out four batteries each in quick succession. Sean.
