The 1934 London-Melbourne Race
In October 2014 it was eighty years ago that The MacRobertson Trophy Air Race (also known as the London to Melbourne Air Race) took place. Time to go back in history and relive the thrill of the event in which daring pilots would exceed the boundaries of contemporary aviation.
From 20 to 23 September 2014, the Nationaal Paracentrum Teuge (NPCT) organized a “Bigway” event, held at its home base Teuge Airport. The goal of the event was to raise the Dutch record for skydive free-fall in formation. The previous record was set in 1999 over Texel, with 72 skydivers. For thisyear’s event, the goal was a mass jump of at least 84 skydivers who would make a red-white-blue formation in the form of a Dutch caramel waffle. In case they succeeded, a second record of one hundred skydivers formating into a windmill figure was planned. Did they succeed? Read it in this special.
