Update from Fanie on the Oudtshoorn Guinness World Record Attempt

After the overwhelming support for our attempt at the Guinness record we would like to bring the following to your attention.

Many pilots expressed concern for the safety of their scale planes during the record attempt. We have planned it very carefully in typical Oudshoorn Scale fashion to ensure the safety of all the planes, pilots and spectators. We will have 4 flight lines with 4 separate circuits which will host 15 planes each. This may sound like a lot but many of you will remember 2 years ago we had 17 Piper Cubs in one circuit so it can be done. There is a circuit for electric's as well.

After all the request the club decided last night that we are willing to make an exception to allow non scale planes to for the record attempt only. This was done for those who are afraid they might damage their scale planes and to ensure the maximum amount of entries seeing as everybody does'nt have a suitable scale plane. If you want to use a non scale plane in the Guinness attempt it may not be displayed during the course of the weekend or flown. As per tradition only scale planes will be displayed during the day and general flying.

Remember this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and each entrant will receive an official Guinness World Record Certificate so don't loose out.

Please forward this message to all interested parties that might be interested in the new developments as soon as possible as to enable us to allocate them their respective frequency spots. Spectrums welcome :-)

See you all in Oudtshoorn.
