    SYNOPSIS: An international aerobatic competition brought fliers from the Soviet Union, Hungary, Poland, East Germany and Czechoslovakia together near Kiev in the Ukraine last week.

    Before taking to the air...the last meticulous check of the machines.

    The programme consisted of four set aerial exercises by the thirty-seven airmen and women.

    The judges and spectators on the ground watched closely as the aviators pressed for precision and power for their points scores. After the preliminary rounds the field was narrowed to fifteen -- five of them women -- for the finals.

    With victory in sight the fliers were airbourne again...and pitting their skills against one another.

    The eventual winner -- Sergei Frolov of the U.S.S.R. His performance led the Soviet contingent to an easy victory in the teams competition. Czechoslovakia was second and East Germany third.
