2012 North Weald RV gathering

On balance, the weather was kind to us for the North Weald RV gathering. Friday saw the arrival of Rens and Joke Verhoeven in their RV9A, PH-RVN and Jan Van Wyk in his RV6A, PH-CRJ, the first of the 'lowlands wing' arriving from the Netherlands. I had to work in the morning but got to North Weald at 13:00, followed closely by Bob Ellis from Haverfordwest in his prize winning RV8, G-JBTR.

RV Air Racing - By John Kelsall


I've been Air Racing now for four years and every year it gets better!

I got hooked when I attended an Air Racing school which I saw advertised in one of the many aviation magazines I read cover to cover every month.I had some 100 hours on my RV6 and I’d done all the usual fly-ins and £50 hamburger runs. And I had now found something else to do with the aircraft I had spent three years building.

Schneider Trophy 2004

2004 Schneider Trophy at Bembridge Isle of Wight

- By John Kelsall

 

 

Sunday the 30th of May 2004 dawned bright and shining after a somewhat miserable Saturday on the Isle of Wight. The day was a little auspicious as it was for the first time in more than five years that the World's most famous air race the Schneider Trophy was to be run at its spiritual home over the waters of the Solent.

From John Kelsall.

 

 

A great weekend for the Air Racing RVs! Sunday 28th May saw the Royal Aero Club Records Racing and Rally Association 22nd Schneider Trophy Air Race Sponsored by Breitling Watches and Fly-BN the Owners and operators of Bembridge Airport, the spiritual home of the Schneider since it was flown over the nearby waters of the Solent in the inter-war years where the Race was staged until it was won outright by Great Britain in 1931.


Schneider Trophy 2006

Dear All,

Its me again on about air racing, but please give the following a read and make the Schneider Trophy Weekend the biggest RV event in the European calendar.

 

As you may be aware 2006 sees the 75th anniversary of Great Britain’s outright win of the Schneider Trophy Air Race in 1931.

I am sure you already know of the enormous impact the Schneider Trophy had on world history with the winning aircraft, The Supermarine S6B being the forunner of the famous Spitfire, but that, as they say is history.
