NOVEMBER 2020 NEWSLETTER
Next meeting: November 12, 2020
7:30pm, Blair Field Clubhouse
I will not attend the next
meeting. Someone already told
me he will not going either, and suggested we even cancel the Christmas Party.
That COVID thing, you know... Also called "abundance
of caution". If that virus does not kill you it might leave you damaged, and I
am in no hurry to go. Rather be a live chicken than a dead fox.
Snow, damn snow, 18cm on Sunday October 25...
I have seen enough in my life, I wish I could do like the other frogs and
hibernate until the end of next April! I tried, but somehow always wake up
Now Nov. 8, the temperature went down to minus 6
last night in my area, good thing I have done all my work in the back yard. I
will now be busy inside with R\C building and more experimenting with
electronics. And I will be looking forward to nicer days to go fly my drones.
Social distancing to the max!
I have been sorting out the aircraft stuff in my
shed and came across this tool.
Now I don't know what it is. If anyone know and would have
a use for it just come and get it!
Next is this belt for a speed reducing system.
Anyone wants it? Free!
I also have those 12 Belleville spring washers.
For the recycle pile, maybe?
I just got me a call from
somewhere on the Pacific, coming back down from Alaska on a boat that he built.
Looks like he is having a great time! He sold his last aircraft last year, but
says he is getting the bug again! I expect he will be coming by one of these
Like I said last month, I
am running out of ideas for this newsletter. I have been doing it for 19 years
and I should "quit while I'm ahead". If I received more contributions in the
form of photos and stories it would be more encouraging to stay on. Thanks to
Jan and Gordon for their stuff on this issue!

Thought you may get a chuckle
when you learn that I have now assembled my 12th UL for spring time 2021.
It will have the Solairus soaring (strutted) trike wing manufactured by North
Wing in Chelan, Washington. The trike was not totally complete at purchase,
the wing is one used or the first Canadian electric trike ventures. It is a
match to my current ATF trike with a MZ34 2-cycle motor. This trike will use the 26
hp Cisco 2-cycle manual start. Our friend Leroy Procter donated a propeller.
I managed to transport the trike to Procter
Field just hours before the blanket of snow visited. Had
a very short test flight, found the propeller was biting too much air.
The few flights I enjoyed this summer into fall with the NorthWing ATF trike has given
much pleasure and revived my enthusiasm for light aircraft flying, having no
desire to go anywhere for distance now. Heck, I may even get out the snow skis I
built years ago for my first NorthWing Maverick 447 Trike for some winter "air time fix".
In this following picture of
the Solairus trike wing, you can see the struts (no king post) allow me to place
the trike into the hangar without having to take the wing down. It sure saves
time, and my 80-year-old back appreciates it so much!

ANOTHER SLIMY MUDSUCKER...

around Mars! :-)

Thanks for your
detailed reply which I appreciate so much.
I have properly
reviewed the aircraft with my wife and we have accepted to purchase it! What is
the last price of the aircraft? I still want to invest into more similar
aircrafts for resale and rent! I believe you are in better position to assist me
achieve this investment plan.
I wouldn't like you
to expose this investment plan due to the Switzerland civil service act of March
2000 is against retired senior civil servants to have offshore investments, a
panel of inquiry is been setup by Switzerland Government to investigate my
assets as a retired Political office holder & Senior Civil Servant in
Switzerland because there is allegation of financial wrongdoing against me by my
office which prompted the government to gave me a compulsory retirement.
I cannot travel to
your country to inspect the aircraft for now due to the nature of the panel of
inquiry investigation, I will like you to personally and privately handle the
purchase of your aircraft confidentially on my behalf and when the panel
investigation is over, I will fly with my family to meet you to avoid being
harass by our local security agents, and as well have a deserved retirement rest
with my family.
Payment for the
aircraft will not be a problem because i have funds in a depository and
financial agency in London in my wife's name Corinne Doris Germann and I would
like to make you the authentic beneficiary of the funds to enable you go to
London in person and claim the funds as my beneficiary and help me with the
aircraft purchase and relocation to your country.
The amount is $17.5
million usd cash and you will deduct payment for the aircraft, your expenses for
the trip and a financial reward of 20% of the total funds for your help. The
Depository will assist you with their banking agent that will help you open a
non-residential bank account to lodge the cash without questions and for gradual
online banking transfer to your country and after the claim you will send me
USD$157,000 from the funds for my family relocation expenses /my wife medical
treatment while you invest the balance in real estate development project.
I don't want to hide
anything from you so that you can make up your mind, I will give you full
details, and contact details of the depository and all valid claim documents for
the claim once you confirm to me you can handle this transaction based on trust.
CAN I TRUST YOU?
