Thank you Phil for once again posting the photos and results so promptly.
Cliff ran all the midland comps, supplying speaker system, computer results with print outs for slots and results with help from the ladies, renting the field and supply the prizes
We were all pleased with how friendly and well the
comps were run.
BMFA results compiled by Martin Bell, usually posted the same day after competing and traveling a long way, Thanks Martin

Commercial Jetliner Joined by Virgin Galactic
Here is something you probably will never see when flying.
During the flight, just off the left wing, as visible in the video, there emerges a totally futuristic aircraft. What was it? Virgin Galactic's brand new SpaceShipTwo and its mothership plane, the White Knight II.
Even more impressive, the aptly named SpaceShipTwo (it literally goes into space) executed a parallel landing with the commercial airliner.
This takes it to 2.4KG, still not heavy for 4 metre model
