The 'missing' competitors numbers were SP-SSC (26) SM2  c/n 900102 and G-OPJT (14) Enstrom. 
The U S Army team was formed at Fort Rucker especially for the event and were airlifted into, I
believe, RAF Upper Heyford.  The main competition was won by the Russians except the freestyle
which was won by the brilliant Charly Zimmermann of the Germany Army who also delighted many
IAT crowds over the years in his Bo.105.
