A rather unique special event, this week's fly-in was organized in cooperation with the UK fly-in crew to coincide with the actual Red Bull Air Race in London. Tonka provided us with an X-Plane rendition of the course after the idea had been proposed by Lemon and overwhelmingly supported in a forum poll. With unfavorable weather conditions to deal with, even completing the course without crashing was a challenge in itself, and any actual competition remained rather secondary during the weekend. Despite this it was an unforgettable event altogether. Due to the extreme difficulty in actually navigating the pylon track, the screenshots for this week are a bit low-key, but I did manage to put together a video of my best attempt, which you can view from the video section of this site.
