Problems at the Jet Masters in the USA -- Percy Attfield

I had a call from Marthinus Potgieter, the Jet Masters Team Manager, at 10:30 Sunday night telling me that they have been hit by a tornado. Francois Diedericksen and his girlfriend has been taken to hospital. The other members of the team have injuries but have not gone to hospital.

I understand from him that the planes and equipment are mostly destroyed.

All of them were in a large tent which was blown away, the tent poles broken and heavy steel tables blown 300 or 400 metres and then dumped again.

I have no more information at present, if more information becomes available I will keep you informed.

I have spoken to Bob Skinner who is at Muncie in the USA, he will call Marthinus.
