models on show

A Visit to the Combined Ops Air display at Headcorn Aerodrome, Kent 15th & 16th August 2015.  At the invitation of Phil Holt, the Flying Display Director for full size activity at Bygone Days and who visited us on Slim Gregory Day, Roger Palmer, a chap called Dennis and the writer flew from Hurn in a Robin, G-ROBN built in 1978, maintained and owned by former Fleet Air Arm officer, Ralph, owner of Airtime Ltd. The Robin has a Lycoming 180 engine and cruises at a bit over 100 knots. We departed Hurn at around ten and after one hour flight time arrived at Headcorn airfield in Kent. Phil used five way points, but stayed south of that line to keep away from Gatwick traffic.

Amazing.  Fanatastic.  Glorious.  Unbelievable.  That was the comments from members and guests to the annual Slim Gregory Fun Day.  With full sun, blue skies, a gentle breeze blowing down the runway and all coming together on the planned day.  What more could you ask for?  The annual Family Fun Day in memory of Slim Gregory, a past president of the club is a great day out for members and their families.  Full blown BBQ followed by an excellent array of naughty but nice gateaus.

This annual event is now in it's 25th year of supporting local charities.  Over those long years the organisers have raised £250,000.  Sadly, this year is going to be the last Bygone Days.  Elaine and Campbell have achieved great success but consider it time to stand down.  Maybe someone else will take up the reins or find another venue locally, time will tell.
