BMFA Scale event - Pontefract

Post by Richard T on Mon Apr 20, 2009 10:19 pm

The first round of the BMFA scale championships was held at Pontefract race course on Sunday 19th April. Yours truly entered the "Stuka" and finished 6th behind Mick Reeves. The morning was cold and overcast and the afternoon brillant sunshine, blue sky and sunburn. The top 3 were M Henderson DH4 (Scotland), P. McDermott Sopwith Snipe (England) and R. Crapp Ryan PT22 (England). Next round is Bulford, Wiltshire where I again hope to scare a few more people with the dive bombing and rather loud siren Very Happy

Well I wouldn't want it to drop on my head eventhough it is blue foam dummy bomb. It is a scored flight option to F4C rules with the requirement that it lands infront of the judges on the strip. Wind blowing in your face could cause them to run for cover. First and second placed competitors also dropped dummy bombs.

I can arrange something a tad more "fire and brimstone" if required from a "Dummy" bomb?!!!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
