Sports and Intermediate Nationals
Over the last few days, the British Aerobatics Sports and Intermediate Nationals have been hotly contest at the Flying Club Conington airfield. The standard of flying was incredibly high with scores of 80% or more not even getting a medal! The Ultimate Aerobatics Waltham contingent had a good couple of days with scholarship winner Stuart Baylis picking up a silver medal in the Sports. It should have been a gold but for a momentary loss of concentration! The weather called for a close a day early, however I think everyone left happy.
A massive congratulations to Andy McKee who won the Sports Nationals in his incredible Twister and to Maciej Kulaszewski for winning the Intermediate trophy.
It was the first major competition since 2019 and it was great to see everyone once again. Our thanks go to the British Aerobatics team including Chris Sills for putting the contest together and the superb Flying Club Conington for hosting.
During our time at Conington, they unveiled a fitting tribute in the shape of a mural to the brave B17 crews of the 457th Bomb Group that were stationed there during WWII, many of which never returned.
