Silver Dart Flies! (Hamilton
Airport, February 6, 2009)
First flight occurred at the
Hamilton Airport on 6 February. Some taxi tests duirng which the
main wheels got airborne, back to the hangar for some calculations
and Centre of Gravity adjustments and then several runs down the
runway with flights of up to 3000 feet and up to 10 feet off the
ground. The Silver Dart appeared quite stable in flight.
Tryggvason's thumbs-up says it all.
I understand that there may be a
couple more flights before it is packed up for Baddeck.
It was quite a privilege to be there
for this part of our celebration.
