Funny but no-one has mentioned that, at the "Ewardians" event last Sunday, there was an "aircraft crash".
OK, it was a large scale model, but a lot of us were watching when it suddenly nose dived into the ground - about 10m from the crowd line and even nearer to the Collection's Gladiator! Had it come down a few metres nearer the crowd line then there could have been some serious injuries or worse. No surprise then that no other large models then flew!
It was very windy on Sunday and many aircraft did not fly, and some visitors did no even arrive (BoB Hurricane included because of the assumed crosswinds at Coningsby!).
Any thoughts about the flying of large models at events like this?
PS: did anyone who attended, actually get any photos? (I did not and the same was true of some other people close to me (about 80m further down the crowd line).
