First Flight in the new Wing42 Blériot XI

Recommended Posts

I love how you were pretty much lost for words when you took off :biggrin: Interesting historic little plane! 🍻.

One good thing is that you can easily check if you're on the runway centreline - just look between your feet! :laugh:

 

(wonders if the freeware FSX Bleriot is any good...? :unsure:)

Yes apart from the unexpecting veering to the left I was surprised at how gracefully she floated into the air.  Lovely to fly.  It forces you to relax and take it easy!  

Yes very considerate floor level air conditioning there.  Either than or it is somewhere to discard your apple cores.

.. and not be concerned about numbers - no ASI, dodgy looking altimeter (EDIT: Love the anti vibration spring mounts!), no fuel gauge. Is she stalling out of the sky? No.. OK then all's well. I would like to land: Let's make the ground come closer then.. 🍻
