Air Competition 2013

We spent last weekend at the Weston Park Model Air Show where Dave competed in the Air Pro Competition. The forecast threatened showers all weekend but we were lucky & only experienced a couple on Saturday. What a competition it was! Each pilot flew two rounds, one on the Saturday & one on the Sunday. They flew to 3 mins of music to perform their best 'demo' flight. We were treated to some amazing flights - Bert Kammerer also joined us for some demo flying which was spectacular. And who could forget Jack Bishop's flights - wearing a pink tutu he deservedly won the most entertaining flight of the weekend and also came 3rd in the Pro Class. Well done Jack! Dave finished in 8th place with only 5 points separating 4th - 8th position. Only 1 point separated 1st & 2nd place. A brilliant weekend & one which we can't wait to repeat next year.
