Cliff's Hawker Crash - April 2010

In the Beginning was Cliff Sands' Hawker Biplane, lovingly created over the course of many months.

As you can see, the thing is beautiful and Cliff is rightly proud.

On the maiden flight the airplane made a normal takeoff. Once airborne, this mild mannered airplane became possessed by the infamous GOTCHA GREMLIN.  While Cliff was bending the sticks on his radio, the airplane veered hard left, flipped over and made a Kamikazi dive into John Parks' brand new virgin trailer!

The contest between the airplane and trailer was pretty much a draw...

Both have since been repaired and are now happily doing what they do.
