Yes. From what I understand, I missed it by about 3 minutes, he was doing some low inverted and the motor died. It went in upside down and somewhat nose first. The nose was crushed, canopy broken and the top of the tail was banged up. Looked like the main body and wings were fine, along with all the night flying lights.

Hi All,

Many thanks to Eric and his team. Also a BIG THANK YOU to all the sponsors for the great raffle prizes. As usual a warm welcome and a great event,with pizza and cake Saturday night which was a nice touch.
Hopefully see you all next year.
If you stayed at home because of the weather forecast you missed a great Friday and Saturday with only rain on Sunday but that cleared to allow some of us to fly. I wished I had not but that's another story!
Nice to see you all again.

Regards,

Mark 'The Brit'

I want to thank everyone that decided to ignore the weather forecast and come out. We had a great time, the wind was manageable Saturday afternoon which provided for a great auto contest (I just wish someone had told me that they were going to do some sliding autos, now I have to replace a pilot station marker, the 700N was not damaged in the incident). We were able to get some night flying in (didn't start to rain until 9:30 when we were finishing up). It was a treat watching Kyle "ghetto" night fly. Yuri had a great night flight up until the end. He was making a slow inverted pass (basically the prop wash was keeping the plane in the air) when the motor quit. It dropped straight in from about 3-4 feet, in fact if he had been right side up it would have been a landing. He said he was looking for an excuse to put the larger engine in and add some more rudder area.
I also want to thank the sponsors, they really stepped up. A full list can be found on our web site.
