Look how consistent Tetsuo Onda is across 3 panels as well as the two PLR brothers. I am looking forward to seeing the finals this weekend. The teams from France, Japan and USA also look extremely close right now.

Regarding age, I'm also very impressed with the young pilots, Onda, Trumpp and Kaiser. Lacking the 30 and for some almost 40+ years of experience of the old hands, the juniors compete at a very high level.
Remember that MAZZUCCHELLI Marco is probably the youngest of them all. But he might get the help from Silvestri (BTW why is he not flying?).

I would guess that since Silvestri has decided to call San Marino his home now, he has to wait 1 WC cycle before he can compete for their national team, much like Quique did when he became a US citizen.

Chris
Pics suggest he pulled the wing tube through the wing, but this is complete armchair analysis just from a couple pics. No way to know for sure until we hear from someone on-site.

Thx Doug.

I actually heard some stuff since I posted. Hadn't seen any pics though.

Companies should look at how the Abbra wings are built. Super strong, super light. I don't know why everyone doesn't build em this way.

Bummer for Chip. Glad he saved the plane though! That's part of what set's the great pilot's apart from the good pilots. Being able to think fast enough to save it.

Chris,

I agree in regard the Abbra and any other model built by Jaroslav Mach. I have been flying the Abbra since 2003. The Abbra in the electric version will last forever. I got three Abbras one still on YS and two electric. Never had structural problems. The only structural issue was a mid air at the Nats. A direct hit to the wing and I was able to land.

See you this weekend,

Vicente "Vince" Bortone

And BPLR flew from something like 9th place up to 2nd at the EC in Italy in the finals so anything can happen. In which case someone owes us a burger
Great to see Chip up there, and Matt the elder. Gotta love a sport where age is not an issue.
Age is a definite issue. The older eyes just don't see as well as the younger. For Matt to be flying as well as he is, it is most impressive thing in this Tournament.
Round about how old is Herr Matt, do ya reckon (from a 50-something beginner...).

I did a raw score tabulation for placings through 30th (and everyone else in order). This will all change tomorrow with normalizing (or maybe not depending on how consistent the judges are scoring) but gives an idea of relative standings at this time.

Fun now to bed...

On the issue of Wolfgang Matt's age, I was standing there listening after he flew today. He stated that this is his 24th straight WC. That means 48 plus his age at the first one. He isn't young! By the way, his flying was excellent, no matter the age.

We need a TV channel, even if only internet based[8D], for this.

Wolfgang is 63 - and still a fantastic pilot. Information on all the competitors is available in the official contest programme, which can be downloaded from the AMA web site.

I am sure Chip might explain on later, but he was using an experimental wing attachment system instead of the nylon bolt and nut, it does not have anything to do with the wing structure, wings perfectly fine, the attachment failed and the wing came off.

On Wolfgang, he retired from his proffesion, he will keep competing in F3A, and as he told me, now he has more time to fly, so probably he will get even better, plus more new designs on the works.

Best regards

I hope so, but I'm not optimistic. The 2 video companies that I know of who were approached said they couldn't justify it financially.

Here's a question...

Could Chip register a 3rd airplane now to have one as a backup since his other airplane is not flyable, or would he be required to repair the damaged aircraft if he wanted 2 available?

I didn't see Chip fly today but I heard someone say he flew his repaired plane today. Don't know if true. I also understand once processing of primary and backup is complete no other planes are allowed and pilots cannot share planes.

Is it wrong that all the pics of Chip I see, I can't help but think he's muttering something about eating his spinach? LOL. J/K Chip!

Renegade, I'm not real sure but I think I hear the "fat lady" clearing her voice and getting ready to sing! I wonder what she will sing this time? IMHO, CPLR reigns supreme in the world of pattern!Regards, Everette

Anything can happen when you get to the F and Unknowns. It's certainly not locked up for CPLR yet. Does anyone remember at what point they decide the Team title?

Doug, I noticed you used the word "yet". As I said before, you either give lessons or take lessons. In CPLR's case, when it comes to consistency, he wrote the book!___Everette
