Vintage FAI at Tangent was the best yet - here's a few pictures.
Nigel Tarvin and Pussycat (Era 5)
Me and Night Train (Era 5)
Group - Greg Davis and Bob DeShields both with Gastoves (Era 2)
Bob DeShields and Saturn (Era 3)

Bruce Hannah won - it was a good contest.

A few more pics;
1) Will Tilse and a T Bird
2) Another look at the DeShields Gastove
3) Nigel gets Pussycat away - you can tell by his expression that he's not having any fun at all........
4) Bill Swift and the only diesel model, a Top Banana (CS Oliver)
5) Glen Schneider gets ready to fire up the Super Tigre G20 in his Lucky Lindy, while eventual winner Bruce Hannah checks the conditions.
6) Bill Hooper makes a VTO with a model I didn't get the name of. The Greenhead coughed as he released it which accounts for the less than vertical attitude.

It was a great contest. Weather was just about perfect. A nice break from the heat and all the smoke!  We had fun on the FAI end of the field as well Smiley
