BMFA World Record Attempt.
On the 15th May 2022, the BMFA attempted a world record to have as many aircraft in the air at the same time as possible. On the day, 3109 models at 263 flying sites across the UK were in the air at 12:00. Despite the poor conditions, six intrepid pilots from DRCF braved the wind at our Ashbourne airfield site to contribute to this attempt, including three generations of pilots from the same family.

The Pilots from left to right are James Bullivant, five year old Luke Bullivant, Rex Bullivant, Gary Wright, Martin Lilley and Mike Astle.
