NASA at the BMFA National Championships – RAF Barkston Heath 26/27/28 August 2006

Saturday evening free flight.  If you have never experienced this it is difficult to understand the atmosphere.  Anything up to a hundred models being flown.  This model is at least fifteen years old and only flown at the Nats.  Made from the original plan of a Hobbies Champion bought in 1957 and fitted with an original ED Bee, (click for photo. Not the original as this one was bought off e-bay last year).

A couple of years later after a successful flight this model was stolen before it could be retrieved. It was replaced by an identical model which is still flyable today. 2022.
