|These two Yak 54's ended up like this after the same manoeuver in the
same area of the field within 10 minutes;
both engines cut out, the planes stalled, and on landing both
undercarriages and engines bulkheads broke.
Congratulations Allan & Bruce
Anything you can do, I can do better!
Who's hung up?
This is what happens when one gets confused which

Keith consoles George!

Oh well, Jim wanted an excuse to upgrade
to Bixler 3!
CHAD'S MIRACLE BLOOPER!
Following a deadstick Chad, and all
spectators, abandoned hope when his
plane disappeared into the trees amidst
horrific loud sounds of smashing timber.
But miraculously the plane was rescued
from the foliage with hardly a scratch.
His lucky day indeed!
Four identical Reaktors in the air at once.
Tony asked if anyone had a timer running.
Dennis took his eye off the ball when looking
at the time left on his trans. Guess what.......
he started flying Tony's. Full speed straight
down. Result - lots of little bits of foam!
Ken's Frontier Senior trainer (Ken was not at
the controls) hit the deck in a big way during
a fast low pass. Wings, engine, fuel tank
were scattered over more than 50 metres of
the field! It seems as if an elevator horn
broke at the critical moment.
Ken was extremely philosophical about it all.
It could have been anyone, no blame
whatsoever. At least his brand new nitro
