That was it!
The Piper meeting 2014 is over. Despite the still very mixed weather in Germany and Europe , 93 aircrafts (70 PA-18 / J3C and 23"guest aircrafts") of the 183 registered aircraft (123 PA-18 or J3C and 60 "guest aircrafts”) attended to the Piper meeting.
Unfortunately I had to cancel the flights to Kiel, Wyk and Nordborg due bad weather.
Due heavy rain and thunderstorms the flights could not be performed - safety first.
The prize for the best looking PA-18 / J3C won the crew Patrick Kaufmann and Father Joseph with their J3C / L-4, HB-ALP.
The prices for the three longest approaches with a PA-18 / J3C went to:
|1.||OE-AFC||PA-18-95||Martin Skacel||Zeltweg, Austria||859,33 km|
|2.||G-HACK||PA-18-150||Simon Harris, Richard Stow||Oaksey Park, England||829,70 km|
|3.||HB-ODH||J3C-65/L-4||Cornel Zemp, Miriam Kappeler||Kägiswil, Switzerland||818,58 km|
The longest flight of all participants came from Graz in Austria. In difficult weather, the crew Christof Fischer and co-pilot covered 901.92 km flight to Rendsburg with their PA-12.
I would like to thank everyone who supported the Piper meeting.
I hope we'll see you all at the Piper Meeting 2015 in Jena.
Always happy landings,
