BMFA F3N Nationals 2013

I can't believe it was a week ago today that the BMFA F3N Nationals took place at RAF Barkston Heath. Due to the awful Saturday forecast, Rob Turnbull, the CD, decided to postpone the F3N competition until the Sunday.

Although the entries to the competition were lower than anticipated the competition went ahead as planned, taking turns with the F3C guys to fly a round. We flew 2 rounds of set manoeuvres, 1 round of freestyle & 1 round of music. Duncan Osborne regained his title with Dave in 2nd place & junior Connor Sloan coming in 3rd. The scores can be found on the UK F3N team website:

This was also the 2nd round of the F3N Team trials to compete at the 2014 European Championships which should be held in Italy (still to be confirmed). Final results of the two team trials mean that Duncan Osborne, Stu Smith, Dave Fisher & Connor Sloan (Junior) will represent the UK next year. Well done to all concerned!

Our next venture out will be to the Southern Model Air Show at Headcorn Airfield, Kent, where Dave will be flying a display slot on Sunday 15th Sept. Headcorn is a new venue for the SMAS & is Julie's old stomping ground from her skydiving days. Maybe we'll see you there.
