Theft Alert
Author: Luella Cousins

One of the risks of being a remote control flight enthusiast is that there is always the danger of our endeavors crashing. The only thing that is worse is when someone steals our equipment. Such was the case for Anthony Pigeau of Salmon Arm, BC, formerly of Kelowna.

Over the holidays, Anthony's home was broken into and trashed. All of his aircraft, RC cars, Monster trucks, computers, etc were taken.

One of the aircraft stolen is a very unusual model of which a photo is attached. There were only about five ever made and getting a replacement will be hard, if not impossible.

This plane should not be difficult to spot. If you see or hear of anyone flying this craft or trying to sell it, please notify your local police. Do not tip the person off by asking too many questions but call your local authorities immediately and tell them of this article.

We must all take heed of the wanton theft of our equipment. If this becomes a common problem, there will be consequences for the model flyer which could result in higher insurance premiums or companies refusing to insure these items all together.

Please alert all of your flying friends to this incident and please, be alert to any sign of the stolen items.
