Observations on timekeeping

Random check of timekeeping from organisation-members.
Generally no problems and good visibility.
During a lack of qualified timekeepers for fly-off in F1A the organizer accepted the use of only 1 timekeeper per competitor. This might have caused the incident reported below.

Any incident or accident

The timekeeper for Steffen Jensen in the fly-off in F1A might/must have observed a wrong model, since later view on the flights altimeter result shoved a flight around 420 sek., and the model landed 4-500 meter further out than the winner.
