NOT TO BE MISSED…
Bruntingthorpe Flyout... Next weekender club flyout is on Sunday the 24th August to Bruntingthorpe to see some of their collection of jets do some fast taxying. This event only occurs twice a year so it should be an unmissable in your calendar to be able to fly into the event, absorb the atmosphere, excitement and noise of the event before flying out again. Not many people have the luxury to be able to do that. There is also the opportunity to look around the static musem displays. Check the weekend club page in members section for more details!
It is with sadness that we heard that Sgt Anthony Ayre RAF was tragically killed in an accident on the late afternoon of Monday 21 July 2014 near RAF Leuchars. He was a dear friend to many, an excellent aviator and engineer. He will be missed by all who knew him.
