Shuttleworth Military Pageant – June 2014

Our first outing to Shuttleworth of the year, unfortunately our trip was cut slightly short due to the Sopwith Triplane making a somewhat unconventional landing which delayed the remainder of the display by an hour or so, at which point we headed home.

The pilot was unharmed, and the Triplane is repairable although won’t be flying again this year.

Odd Down Circuit Races – 2014-06-10

The first race of the summer series and Odd Down was run by VC Walcot. A full compliment of youth races meant splitting the course in two for the initial races, before restoring it to the full 1.5km for the rest of the evening. A crash in the 3/4 race lead to it being abandoned part way through, and the subsequent E/1/2 race being slightly shortened to fit in with the available light.
