For the record, Chris was flying his Pike Perfect, Craig maidened his Explorer, Michele flew a Pike Perfect SL & Explorer.
Derek Marusich was our fantastic CD for the day, & he most kindly donated the R100 petrol money back to the MGA to support the team. Martie provided catering (did we mention that F3J is rather physical & requires lots of energy?).
The only issue occured when a full size aircraft (a "Jabiru"?) tried to fly amongst the models in the air over the field. He had to take hard evasive action (90 degrees left turn) & the closest model performed a split-S (on landing) to avoid a almost certain crash. It was just as well that thios pilot took action, as I believe he would have smashed into the radio tower if he had contunued along his route. Unbelievably, this all took place at less than 80 metres altitude - a CAA "near miss" incident will be reported.
