History - Pioneer of Aviation

An interesting video in which the Isle of Sheppey together with Eastchurch are both mentioned. The recording level of this film is quite low so you will need to increase the volume A LOT but its well worth it to here this gentleman speak modestly of his exploits.


It's raining outside and I know you guys out there are interested in model railways? My old school mate David Guscott former Surrey Schools footballer and cricketer before he retired worked for the German HF bank and often visited Rheingauz (I think Blue Nunn wine is made there?). As David's son did an electronics degree he became interested in making model railway layouts and the first he and David made won an award. David's son now lives in America so David's wife Iris has had to take over. She is in charge of trucks and David carriages!---You can tell he was a bank manager. If any of you have got this far take a look at this 'Z-gauge' layout,even the boats and barges move and are driven by a chain with magnets set under the water. So far David has produced four award winning layouts,and one was featured in the October 'Continental Modeller' magazine. Unfortunately my video is poor!

TJD's Open Night

Hi all, Dont miss it.

Saturday, 3 November 2012


"Use your loaf" - if it's too muddy driving onto the field it's safer to leave your vehicle on the road and walk your gear over to the flight line - getting your vehicle stuck could be a real problem as the tractor we borrowed at the fly-in was returned! Poor chap below forgot to use his loaf...

Water Companies

Just a thought...
Oil, gas & electric prices seem to be set by availability & demand...
I wonder if we could have a water rate price reduction - in light of all the rain the whole country has had...
We all know the answer don't we...
