Lineup of Precision Aerobatics planes on Sunday at the Western Canada Stunt Championships. Bruce Hunt photo.
The 2010 edition of the Western Canada Stunt Championships were held on July 24 & 25, at the Rice Mill flying field in Richmond BC.
A small but enthusiastic group of flyers enjoyed bright sunshine, warm temps and a stiff breeze at times, but it didnt dampen the competition.
We had flyers from Washington, Oregon and Alberta besides the B.C. flyers to compete in Profile, Classic and three classes of Precision Aerobatics.
