Ferte Alais 2001
Two new videos for the model aviation enthusiast. Both are of well
known events. The first is from the Irish company AVF Video and
gives us over 100 minutes of this year's La Ferte Alais. If you
weren't able to go to the show then the DVF team will bring the
show to you! Nearly every aircraft that flew and some that didn't
are featured on this extensive video.

second unmissable event was this year's National Championships held
in glorious weather (except Saturday aftenoon) at Barkston Heath
in Lincolnshire. Here is how the BMFA are describing the video.
WEEKEND AT THE NATIONALS" - THE VIDEO
Terrific! Wonderful! Fantastic! These are just a few of the
accolades given by those that have seen the video of this year's
National Championships. This is no ordinary video about model flying
but about the whole scenario and whilst it shows all types of models
in action, it is really about the people who are there and what
goes on behind the scenes.
series of visual "bites" make you wonder what you are
going to see next as every aspect of the Nationals is packed into
this 35 minute film. The whole approach is quite unique and is compiled
with a personal touch and a sense of humour that exudes the spirit
and family atmosphere of the greatest model flying event in Europe.
It has got be worth watching just to see Mike Goldby, the Development
Officer, doing the introduction with what appears to be a severe
case of indigestion!
video of the Nationals 2000, "The Air Show Big and Small"
is also still available.
