2005 BMFA L2
14-15 May 2005, South Wales
EPP60 (Saturday): Alex McMeekin ran away with the comp, scoring 100 points with his new O/D Banjax. Ballistic conditions led to spectacular structural failures, most notably John Phillips's Wanabee which got a violent dose of flutter, and hit the hill 10 feet below the ridge (see below). Full results are here.
F3F (Sunday): 44 competitors turned up, but the comp was abandoned after two rounds due to lack of wind when Ken Woodhouse was in the lead.
Highlights for me were the Higgins designed Rodents of Andy Ellison and Alex dremelling holes the sky. And the great 30-lap final of the EPP 60! Thanks to organisers and helpers who did a fine job considering the conditions on Sunday. A mention too for Southcoast Sailplanes for the prize of a Mini Blade presented to Kevin Newton for fastest time (45).
Note the F3F pics are before the EPP 60. No captions I'm afraid. Pls click on any picture to enlarge.
