The replacement spindle for the van came in during the week, with a lot of unnecessary crap on it, so I spent some time taking that apart. Sadly the ball joints are ruined, so I'll have to get somebody to press those out and press new ones in. Oh well.
As the weather was nice, I went out to the airfield and went out for a look around. It wasn't too cold, but I was wearing my ski pants :o) The fields are flooded for the birds to nest, and there are a lot of birds about. Usually I'm a ways above them, but there was one long chain of birds that caused me to climb above them (while staying under the Beale controlled airspace step).
