Arthur Hume's rebuilt "Flapper" was test flown yesterday. It started life as an Aeroflyte Typhoon but earned the name "Flapper" because the wings "flapped" on one of its early flights.

Expertly repaired by Arthur (you can hardly see where it was damaged), it now has a new life as a racer, it seems.  Powered by an OS .15 LA, it has not been timed yet but looks to go faster than any of the Rat racers in Townsville. The look on the pilot's face gives you some idea of how fast it goes.
It's good to see Arthur's painting skills improving.
