Niklas Hemlin and Thomas Hughes will be back together for the new Airspeed lineup, while Josh Hall has no comeback plans. He is working on the 2015 plans for the Southern California Skydiving League. Thomas Hughes went from gold in 2012 to silver at the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014, while Niklas Hemlin skipped the world meet in Prostejov as an active member. He was still in the Czech Republic as the Airspeed alternate.
The Airspeed lineup of the past two years is far ahead of all other teams this weekend, with no indication that there could be a US threat any time soon. The AAARspeed lineup shows the oldest and the newest generation of Airspeed members having 4-way fun together. Both lineups combine for a total of 12 world meet gold medals since 1995. By the way: The AAARspeed average after Round 6 (20.3) is almost identical (20.2) with Dan BC's and Jack Jefferies' last world meet in Australia 1999...
