NUMEROUS model aircraft were at the Great Orme for the fourth Power Scale Soaring Association meeting of the year.

Pilots travelled from as far afield as Edinburgh and Belgium to take part in the event last weekend.

Phil Cooke of the Association said: “The idea is that you stand on a cliff top facing into the prevailing wind and launch your model out into the breeze.

"This is what makes the Great Orme such a fantastic slope soaring site, we can fly in all wind directions apart from south east.

“But we do rely on the wind, sadly the conditions were such that high atmospheric pressure dominated the weekend leading to very light winds, insufficient to fly the vast majority of the models folk had travelled with.

“Our next event, on Sunday September 9, will see us stage a mass build. We have asked members to build a model of a certain type for the event.

"As we want to mark the RAF centenary, we have chosen the famous Hawker Hurricane fighter for the build.”
