Colin Paddon wins Interglide F3J Eurotour 2008 flying his Shadow full carbon

7/8 June 2008 Euroglide, Belgium

by Austin Guerrier

A few of us attended the Eurotour F3J contest in Belgium. The weather was not good for the rounds with very low cloud base and visibility. There were about 80 pilots from all over Europe and the flying was difficult in some rounds. Top place UK pilot was Colin Paddon flying his Shadow to 11th place. 9 pilots were chosen for the fly-off, the spacing between these pilots was only 9 points. That is the lowest I have seen on any Eurotour event I have attended and shows how standards are rising even further. Frank Van Melick won the contest with his own design model, is used his own light weight fuselage and tail with an Xperience pro wing. An excellent event and an excellent job done by the organisers.

11 May 2008 40th Fact Open, UK

by Austin Guerrier

The 40th F.A.C.C.T Open was run, John Shaw deserves a medal for running this event over so many years. It was a great day with tricky conditions, most slots were flow out but many pilots found it difficult to make the full 10 mins. Nick Kid won the event flying his cross tail Shadow, this was also Nick's first win and was well deserved.
