The UK and Europe's Control-line Carrier-Deck Site!
In 2013, CARRIER-DECK.COM was proud to sponsor two trophies, awarded to the pilots who flew the fastest and slowest seven laps of the season.
The winners were respectively David Cowburn (Lockheed U2, 23.3 seconds = 77.2mph) and Jan Odeyn (Martin MO-1, 184.2 seconds = 9.8 mph).
Those were very good times – could they be beaten? Surely not – but oh yes, they could – and how!
Fastest Speed: Bert v.d. Meij at the de Peel (Holland) meeting on 14th September, flying his Skyraider
19.1 Seconds = 94.2 mph(!!)
Slowest Speed: Jan Odeyn at the Schwalmthal (Germany) meeting on the 28th September, flying his (not!)-Fleet Shadower
206.4 seconds = 8.72 mph
