Memory of William G. Bennett
1974 and 2002 the legendary Tournament of Champions (TOC) in Las
Vegas took place 18 times. The founder and sponsor of this famous
competition, Mr. William G. Bennett, invited the 20 or 21
worldbest pilots each time. The development of aerobatics was
supported, and clever formulated rules gave very interesting and
new impulses. The TOC became - apart from the FAI World
Championships - one of the most meaningful aerobatic competition
had the unique chance to participate at the TOC from the beginning
to today as a pilot or helper. Wolfgang competed 14 times and
reached 11 times the finals. Roland participated 4 times - 1997
was the first time - and reached the finals every time.
would like to thank William G. Bennett as a promotor of
aeromodelling and for bringing the TOC into being. William G.
Bennett died Sunday, 22nd December 2002. He was 78. We will miss
