Having a Ball in Kirriemuir

Post by wallace »

A farm strip near Kirriemuir, Angus, which operates on a strict 28 Day Rule operation held a fly-in today and I was lucky enough to fly there in a Super Cub, which was a "new type" for me. :)

Here's a selection of photos, there are more in my Flickr Kirriemuir Album
