Thanks Tom!  I hope others have taken time to view the vids there.

I made a correction to the credit.

Harsewinkel "Air Circus"

Not necessarily Free Flight, but interesting nontheless.  This gathering has been in existence since 1960, making it one of the longest, continuous running aeromodeling events in Germany - if not in the World.  Lots of super-sized models and odd aircraft are paramount here.  The event is partially sponsored by Simprop, one of the larger model distributors in Germany.

The home-page has a nice video to give an idea about what goes on - unfortunately the site is only in German - but that should be no real problem...

I've not yet had the opportunity to attend as it is quite a ways from "home" (~ 270 K), but I hope to hitch a ride this year (weekend of the 14/05).

Edited to correct the credit.  IKARUS is the name of the club and the organisation that puts on the show in this case.  Simprop is a major model distributor and is based in Harsewinkel and has helped sponsor the event.
