FIFA World Cup -- update from Lionel

Hio John,
For the SAMAA BLOG please:
This is probably focussed on full size activities as the 50Nm affects them far more during the entire WC, than our 5 Nm RC ban around stadiums only on match days!

The silence from our 'leaders' is certainly DEAFENING in light of the new 80km compulsory no fly zone on match days.

I guess they are as stunned as we are but WHAT are they going to do about it???

On the other hand it's a waste of time to f*rt against thunder.

Lionel Brink has confirmed on Avcom that the 80km zone only applies to full size.

RC still has a 8km limit (5nm). Send the name/number of any cops that pitch at your airfield to Lionel.
