Example text

This was indeed a compliment, and I never forgot him as a result, but I did let him down badly later. We were doing forced landing practice on Ayr racecourse, with snow conditions on the ground. I was cold and could not fly well that day, so my rudder control work was ham-footed, like a man with heavy met I boots on his feet. Harry Comerford eventually landed and told me to get out. ' He told me to take off my flying boots, put them in the small locker behind the rear cockpit and get back in. My poor feet were nearly frozen, but I must confess the next two forced landing practices were less heavy on the rudder controL Finally he flew the aircraft back at low height - the first time I had experienced low flying, and I enjoyed it so much that I forgot my poor feet.

This was nice and straight, but when I had flying speed she seemed nose heavy so I had to apply a heavier stick force to climb out than I had ever experienced before. As [ climbed ahead I thought I must m ke a turn so started to do so. Immediately I did this the nose went up in spite of my pressure on the stick forwards. I suddenly realised I had forgotten to adjust the 'cheese-cutter' trimmer at take-off and reached down with my left hand. This device was simply two elastic bunjees, like a catapult sling, which were attached to the bottom of the control column, and by tightening or loosening one or other bunjee it gave easier stick force for the prevailing flight condition.

The TIger Moth was the aircraft on which I learned to Dy, was trained as a Flying Instructor and in which I then instructed, in all a total of 500 hours. lt is difficult not to become nostalgic, but the Tiger had endearing qualities. Though a simple aircraft to Dy, it was not so easy to Dy well, with ailerons on the lower mainplanes only. The rate of roll was moderate, but as I had not known the Stampe, Ignorance was bliss absolute bliss lt was very much more comfortable to Dy from the front cockpi less slipstream, better view and m the tropIcs more shaded from the sun By the time I had totalled 300 hours, I could make that aIrcraft SIt up and beg.
