Landing Tape from Turkey

Guys,

I am looking to have some landing tapes made professionally. One side AMA and one side FAI F3J. I found a possible Mfg, now I just need to fininsh the graphics.

Does anyone have any images of the tapes that were used in F3J WC in Turkey?

Please email me directly if you have anything.

Thanks

Sherm,

The landing tapes used at the WC's in Turkey were the old 1 Meter per 5 point tapes. I don't have any pics, but I don't think that's what you want...

Yeah, not looking for pictures for measurement, more to give the guy doing the design work an idea of what it is for and how is going ot get used. Already up dated the scoring to current FAI landing task.

Vinyl tape over a type of rip-stop. 13 mils thick with a reinforced grommet. TD on one side and F3J on the other.

Thanks for the heads up.

Sounds great Sherman. Hey, if you wouldn't mind, once it is priced, could you share with us. There might be some value in a group order. I will see if the Torrey Pines Gulls would like to buy some landing tapes...

Thanks in advance.

Great idea Sherman. I tried to do a similar project a few month's ago, but I wasn't able to find anyone to print them that was cost affective for mass ordering. I would like to order 5-10 tapes depending on price. Great job!

Sherman,
Interested as well. I fly with Mike Smith and the TPG crew, so can just piggyback onto that order.

Sherman - I have the actual tapes from Turkey. What you you need - would it be a closeup of one segment? Do you want me to ship you one as a sample?

Jim

PS - I am taking them to the Nats for use at F3J there so I can't send it until after that.

Jim,
I this works for you and Shorty (you can ask Sherman where he got the handle) I am visiting Seattle later this month (27th-28th) and could retrieve the tape and bring to Muncie with me.
