May 2020 – back in the skies after a long lockdown due to the pandemic – Pete Duckworth recently completed his first flight of his fantastic Fokker 1/4 scale D8 (built from a kit). Thanks to Pete for giving permission to share his experience.
Sept 2019 – Alan Frew’s beautiful Boomerang jet carving up the sky at the airfield – this is the second flight when, unfortunately, one of the main gear wheels fell off after take-off, resulting in a difficult, but very skillful belly landing on the grass area without too much damage (thankfully). Well done Alan!
Many thanks to David Mees for recording this and sending it in for the website.
