At the Goodwood revival meeting the Wicko was placed first and won the "Freddie March, Spirit of Aviation" trophy.
This unique converted award depicts the twin engined "Horden Richmond" (2x Continental A-40) light aircraft flying through the engraved glass and mounted on a slate base.
Only one "Horden Richmond" was built and was sadly underpowered with an unconventional control system. No further development took place.

"JD hold the trophy and suitable celebration bottle."

"Rob and Allen were members of the judging team viewing the aircraft over the weekend. They had a tough job judging a very high standard of assembled aircraft".

We were encouraged to dress in 1940's, 1950's fashion and this is the result!
No, we were not on the way to rob a bank".
