Bob Fletcher, representing us in the Standard Class leaves in just over a week on the redeye to Frankfurt with his crew person, John Good.
They are renting a diesel van for a month. Bob and John will drive to Aachen in northern Germany to pick up his rented Discus 2a, “MK”. “MK” has been completely refinished by M&D, the guys who make the JS-1 jets. It will take them a couple of days to drive to Pociunal through Germany, Poland and then Lithuania, mostly on rural roads. Bob attended the pre-worlds at this site in 2015. They will stay in the same house as last year, about 1/2 miles from the airfield and be able to practice by the weekend. Here are some pix from last year. Good luck Bob and the USA!
