Mert's Landing Swap Meet @ Mt. Vernon, Illinois

Post  Kim on Sun Oct 28, 2018 11:28 am

Spent some early morning time yesterday, debating whether to head over to Mt. Vernon for the Mert's Landing Swap Meet---didn't sleep well and the Folgers was having a hard time bringing me around---but finally decided to go for it.

This time around, the attendance was down, but still got some small hardware, along with a box of GREAT Cox Engine parts from my long-time flying bud Thomas Boulnois! I'll be offering some of it to new owners for postage only, as I've got most of it already.

Also got to meet Tina Knight Zieman, a fellow flyer of things large and small, and we all had ourselves a pretty good visit, enjoying the chili and snacks provided.

At one point, a fellow brought in a perfect sized, beautiful de Havilland Tiger Moth, and I was saved only by the fact that I'd only brought dashboard money to spend. I REALLY love this English Biplane but "There is no room in the Inn", and it was a good thing to pass it by.

I finally bailed and headed home, pointing the mighty HHR down I-57, but noticed some goings on at the Rend Lake College R/C Field, and cut a 180 back for a visit.

Brandon Hall and his talented crew were out in the cool air, flying with some friends and having a big time. I got some photos of this action, and an update on Lillieann's further model airplane adventures, which I'll post here when I get the photos crunched.

All-in-all, a pretty good run and a pretty great day!

I have a Tartan single which I want to put on a plane. I can't remember the fuel mix. I know it's very low on oil content and nitro. I was thinking a big Twister. Huge engine and this tiny little glow plug up top looks somewhat comical.

Ok Kim. I'll bite. Is there a story behind the Heineken beer bottle cap? Is it some sort of homemade tool or something. Or was it just something that happened to be in teh box-o-fun?

It looks a little rough. But, I bet it could be easily restored and returned to flying condition.

Heck, people fly toilet seats, why not a bottle cap...... Smile
