Hi Stuart

A bit disappointing, but lots of pics and info in Ashley's article on page 38 and of course
the Nats programme did feature an F3A model on the front  :)

You're right though, a little surprising, perhaps just an oversight?

Hi Mike,
You would have made a good defence lawyer! (As always)
I thought at least, though, the BMFA would want to support all the flying disciplines. Some of the photos appeared to be there just to 'fill' the available space.......

Thanks Stuart  :)

Perhaps a cunning plan is to send them lots of photos from the F3A line next year,
I've put it on my ToDo list for the next Nats.

Hi Mike


I assume with your comments you will be taking the photographs and sending them with captions next year.


I will be good to have some help.


Kind regards

Dont get too stressed out about the lack of F3A photos Stuart. The Silent Flight Nats took place at Buckminster over the Bank Holiday weekend and I cant find a single word or photo regarding that event!!!
