A SUCCESSFUL FLYIN!
Well the weather did hold, at least for those arriving from the east,
north and south. The less fortunate attempting to fly from the west we
faced with very low cloud and rain. We had phone calls from pilots
exxperiencing cloud down to the ground, rain and harsh winds!! We had
over 20 aircraft arrivals including flexwings and autogyros. A fair few
arrived by road, including a gent on a beautiful BSA vintage bike,
wonderful. The first arrival, John and his partner from Bagby, went away
with a much sought after Crosland Moor High Spot mug.
Now a plea for photos - My camera has
done something unspeakable with my photos so if any of you have any
photos of the event please, please send them to me -
firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get them on the site.
Ta in advance!
I do have a couple of photos however of two determined aviators, hearing
of the quality of our butties but who, because of the weather, could not
get here on the saturday, bravely set forth and arrived on sunday. The
photos show their lovely, nay beautiful, Minicab. I fell in love.
The photo above shows the gentlemen flyers, Tony Wakefield and Brian
Suzans. Many thanks for coming gents and hope the butties were worth it
(of course they were!!).
