Pawnee VH-MCF’s New Engine
As this post gets published, MCF our red Piper Pawnee is getting a brand new 235HP Lycoming engine. This will ensure that the tug will remain online and in tip top shape for the 2016 World Gliding Championships. The workshop engineers (Graeme and Bob) are working hard to install the engine with minimal downtime for the club.
A few weeks ago the new engine was placed in a trailer and towed to Benalla by Brendan English and a week later the Deputy Tug Master (Rob P) was seen driving off into the sunset with the old engine, ready for return to Lycoming.
Thanks to all involved.
Our new shiny glider has arrived and has even been spotted over the skys of Benalla. The Committee (and membership) would like to express its thanks to Alby James for making the 6,674KM journey from Benalla (Victoria)to Beverly (Western Australia) 3,337KM of which were with the glider in trailer.
Aircraft Type: Twin Astir
Purchased From: Beverly Soaring Society
