Could everyone keep an eye out for three of our craft. We have had three craft on a large trailer stolen, they went on Sunday (2-3-06). The craft are single seat flying fish craft white/green, yellow/blue, purple/blue. The trailer is unique, painted yellow and can carry three craft, four wheel, heavily logoed FLYING FISH Hovercraft. It is appx 22ft. long. Two craft on lower deck one on upper centre deck.

Any info would be very welcome, if you do see, or hear anything, please give me a ring on 01304 829944.Thanks. Ivan. http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_redface.gif

Is the date a mistake or do you really mean this happened a whole month ago as if it was a month ago I would try asking at the ports as I am told they do video ferry loading. Good Luck.

Ivan,

Sorry to hear about this,

Send a message with full registrations , trailer, crafts, type and engines to

Jean - Claude:

http://perso.wanadoo.fr/rhonealpesmotonautique/

and also to club Aero- Loire. I do' nt have the link, but you' ll find it on our club links.

They always go to any show, and have connections in all states.

Have a look at ULM second hand spare parts advertisings.

Let us cross fingers.

Still no news. Seems incredible that 3 Hovers and a bloody great trailer can just disappear into thin air.



Please keep your eyes open.



One craft is Purple and Blue

One Blue and Yellow (The one I used at All Hallows last November)

One Yellow and Red.



The trailer is th eone shown in this picture.



Cheers All, Fat Reward for info leading to recovery!

And at customs office.

Hi Michel



I think my Dads got that one in hand, but i agree.



I have no doubt that some of them, or at least bits of them WILL turn up. Its too small a community for them not to.



B*stards!

Just heard that Flying Fishes missing craft have been found in Hampshire! Looks like some scumbag will be prosecuted as well which makes a change as no-one got done when my old craft was stolen.

Sure Have!



All three safe and sound, tho the trailers broken, it can be mended.



Craft are fine - they turned up in Chichester.



Many Thanks for everyone's help and support.

Congrats - we're all heaving a big sigh of relief! I gather the craft which went missing in Holland also turned up - which must tell us something.
