Bob F of the CCMAC Control Line Group has been fortunate to have recently acquired a beautifully built and truly classic plane.

It is a "Classic B Team Racer" of the type that was very popular for racing in the sixties. Apparently, at the time, one of the engine manufacturers claimed "100mph for 50 laps"!

CCMAC President Mike is keeping himself busy during the Covid lockdown by scratch building, from plans, a Lazy Ace biplane; to join another already under construction by Gunter. We look forward to an impressive biplane squadron fly past of the two Lazy Aces; and also Gunter and Dennis's Gipsy Moths!

WELCOME TO NEW MEMBERS, WARREN AND ALLAN

Warren B has now rejoined CCMAC. He originally belonged to the Club more than 20 years ago when he was involved with building the Club house. It seems as if he has lost none of his flying skills, and has several nice planes including the four stroke nitro powered Sig Fourstar ARF.

Allan moved to Bateau Bay a few years ago, and looking for a hobby decided to get into Rc with  a new ParkZone Carbon Cub. His previous experience many years ago with gliders, has stood him in good stead, and it seems that it will not be long before he gains his "Wings"
