The Buccaneer Aviation Group (T-Baggers) and friends

Postby MOD » Sun Mar 25, 2012 10:13 pm

Thanks to Andrew Webber for the invite to IA members. The gate numbers appeared to be a little down so I hope XW544 managed to make a few quid on the day.

It was good to meet Gaz,Kermit,Clunes and the GIT.

First up XR728..
The show opened with an unexpected curtain raiser.
XR728 had an engine run. It was not entirely successful as No #1 engine has lost power. No #2 has a fuel pump problem which Andy B assures me is easily fixable.

Engine No#2 is OK

Engine No#1has problems.

Slightly off topic but a read through the linked thread would perhaps suggest the Buccaneer in Ireland is under severe threat of scrapping.
