Classic Jet Tournament - Round 3

Mon Jun 12, 2006 6:21 am

Welcome to Round 3 of the Classic Jet Tournament!

The results of Round 2 were quite even, thus Round 2 Extra had to be carried out. 18 votes were received in the former, and 9 in the latter, producing the following results:

Fokker F.28 Fellowship beat Hawker Siddeley Trident 11 - 7.

Boeing 737-100/-200[b] eliminated the Tournament's last Soviet-built jet, the Tupolev Tu-144 by 14 - 4.

[b]Boeing 727
won over Vickers VC-10 11 - 7, but in Round 2 Extra the VC-10 rehabilitated itself (by winning over the Boeing 707 and the Convair CV-880) and will thus proceed to Round 3.

Convair CV-880/990 lost to Douglas DC-9 with a score of 7 - 11, and was eliminated in Round 2 Extra.

Boeing 707 was defeated by the Anglo-French Supersonic Concorde 7 - 11, and was, too, kicked out in Round 2 Extra by the VC-10.

The Round 3 entrants will be presented shortly. And again, thanks for voting, and keep it up.  Smile
