Default JMA Buckminster September 2018 Meeting.

The UK Jet Modelers Association organised a two day meeting at the BMFA National Flying Centre - Buckminster Lodge
I have to say it was a superb event, wall to wall sunshine on Saturday, less so today, however lots of flying , and a lot of Kero burnt.
Big thank you to the JMA team for arranging the event, and to Manny Williams & the BMFA team for making these first class facilities available to us.
It seems to be ever more difficult in the U.K. to find suitable flying sites for Jet models, and even model flying in general.
I will post a few photographs of the event.

Alistair Powers.

Fabulous weekend of flying, great company, great venue. Can’t wait for our three meetings next year. Huge thanks to Roger and Manny, plus the NFC volunteers who prepared the site for us. I guess close to 1000 ltrs of Kero was burnt over the two days, no turbine issues, no radio issues, what a great time to be involved with this hobby.
Great to see SH back flying with his large F-16, grass no problem.
Loved my Joker, very close to getting it dialled in.
Thanks as always to AP for the photos, know there must be more to come!

A big thank you to all the JMA Team involved. A fantastic weekend with lots of flying - around 28-30L burnt in my CARF Hawk I think !

This was my first visit to BMFA Buckminster, and I’ll definitely be back - fabulous site ��
