This is a picture of the 2018 survivors, plus a few odd components. I count 23 intact aircraft but some of those have been repaired during the course of the competition. Since 68 Barons started that's about a 66% attrition rate!
My club are entering a team of seven this year. I'll let you know how we get on, it's a long time till September!

If I may crave your indulgence one more time gentlemen I have a question about propellers. I find that I already own three 10 x 8 APC propellers which I've never used. I will use these for the speed events as suggested above. For the baguettes and limbo rounds, where sheer speed is not so important, a 13 x 5 propeller was suggested. I cannot find a propeller of this size with any supplier but a 13 x 4 Wide is available from Steve Webb. So three questions:
Boris has had so many engine changes that the firewall looked like a piece of Swiss Cheese so I filled all of the holes with dowel, all thirteen of them, and epoxied a 1mm pice of ply to the front.Subsequently, the firewall has been fuel proofed with epoxy resin and a Magnum 52 has been installed.

If a wooden prop is OK for your Magnum, you can find some here at AliExpress. I paid €12 for 2 pieces 13x5 for my Vicomte.
They are a prop factory and you'll find 13x4s up to 13x8s. Their full range goes from 10" diam. up to 18" in natural wood color or painted black or white.
Hope this helps.
