We had a strong turnout of 12 pilots for our September 9th edition of T28 racing in spite of some of the regulars being absent. As is often the case the qualifying races were all very tight including a spectacular midair between George and Otto that looked looked much worse than it really was. In a show of great sportsmanship Otto and George shared Otto’s backup plane allowing both to compete in all the races. After the dust settled from the preliminary rounds the finals awaited. The results were as follows:
The gold group race results could easily have been reversed if it weren’t for a “race to the bottom” between Steve and Brad resulting in a “unscheduled landing” by Brad’s T28—to add insult to injury our eagle eyed turn judges awarded him a cut. The good news was that the damage was minor to his plane.
A special thanks to Frank, our official photographer for documenting our race in spite of his son Alex being away at school. In addition I also want to thank Dennis and Carl our sharp eyed turn judges.
Our next T28 races will be October 14th at 10am.
