Two NZ overseas records...smashed!

One of our overseas Kiwis has demolished a couple of overseas records.

James Oroc Johnston has flown an Open Distance flight of 319km in Qixada, and also a Declared Goal flight of 218.9km in Chelan during the US Nationals.

These have been scrutinised and declared by the PCC records keeper, Tim Percival, to be the new records.

Keep an eye on this website for a story about these flights soon.
