News from June 2010

Guy has very kindly agreed to sponsor the diesel needs of the Historic Flight and last Friday was able to visit Hullavington to have a look at where his fuel is going. After watching proceedings for a while Guy and I strapped into the Sedbergh and although the soaring day was coming to an end launched into 4 knot thermal to almost 3000′. This gave plenty of time to take in the sights on a gin clear day with views from Exmoor to the Malverns and beyond Didcot. Guy tried his hand at the controls to discover them somewhat agricultural compared to the helicopter he had flown in the past. After flying we had a look at the winch end of the operations followed by a tour of the hanger to see how things have changed in modern times!
