August 26th

It was the Airport Day at Lincoln, so I got there early hoping to watch the hot air balloons go up.  While I waited, I went and flew over Camp Far West Lake reservoir, before toddling back and joining the chaos arriving at Lincoln - there were several faster aircraft and a UH-60 which landed on the taxiway :o)

We were supposed to be down and sorted before 08:00, so I gave up waiting for the balloons and went and parked next to Shane and the powered parachutes for the day - the balloons that were supposed to go up at 06:30 to 07:00 went up at 07:30 to 08:00.

We spent the day talking to people interested in the gyros, a lot of whom recognised us from us flying over their houses :o)

I was pleased to see the Cal Fire aircraft there, as I'd suggested to Richard (the organiser) that he invite them :o)

I was on call, so after Shane and I stopped for lunch, I went home and got some work done :o(
