World VGC Rally 2010
Tibenham was chosen for a Second time to host this prestigious event, the last time back in 2000 - Being a member of the Gliding Club I thought it appropriate that such an Album should be set up - I hope you agree ?
With grateful thanks to The Norfolk Gliding Club and all visiting Pilots and crew for allowing access. This has enabled us to record this remarkable event and also to help out were needed in positioning gliders etc.
Thanks go to Bob Sage, Colin Johnson and David Moth in helping me put together this comprehensive album of images which hopeful does justice to this event

The images in this Album are best viewed by using the "Slideshow" option and are copyright of the photographer - please ask if you would like a copy

All out !!
