The 90's


Up / terug

Busy times, the Nineties - wonder where they went? A few photographs remind me of some of the events…Indoor model flying contest in Flemalle, Belgium.

Another contest at Nottingham, England included an excursion to the Rolls Royce works and their pet Spitfire.

Two of my 3 children took a fancy to model airplanes. With guidance, my 10-year-old daughter constructed a kit plane that flies (Japanese Union "Aero Star", 50cm span rubber powered model with a gearbox/freewheel in the nose).

Typically messy table at indoor flying event! The front model is a French "Saint" formula design named "Miniform" by J.F. Frugoli. It still exists and flies for 2 minutes on 2000 turns of it's rubber strand motor.
