Between 1974 and 2002 the legendary Tournament of Champions (TOC) in Las Vegas took place 18 times. The founder and sponsor of this famous competition, Mr. William G. Bennett, invited the 20 or 21 worldbest pilots each time. The development of aerobatics was supported, and clever formulated rules gave very interesting and new impulses.

We offer now a reprint of the original Circus Circus decals of this time.
