No Computer Graphics Here...

As our flying field is out of action perhaps this light hearted  look at historic aviation will show how we got to the stage of flight we are at now. Remember this is a very old film and there are no "computer graphics or green screens". All the props in the film were made... I am pleased this film has been saved for posterity as so many have been lost.
It's a long film but it's interesting so get a cup of tea and just enjoy it - or go to sleep...

Old Warden Air Display Sunday 05-10-2014

Went to the display last Sunday when the weather was perfect. The main flying theme was air racing and the star of the show was the DH 88 Comet Racer that won a race to Australia in 1934. Other racing planes that flew were two Percival Mew Gulls, one red the other white. The latter was flown by Alex Henshaw for various record breaking flights as covered by the book 'The Flight of the Mew Gull'.

Sorry about the music !

Hi All, This is to let you know that work started on the field today therefore there can be NO  FLYING until further notice.
If you were thinking of going to the field tomorrow (Saturday 4th) or have nothing else to do we would appreciate your help.  If you could come along with a bucket and help pick out all the large stones that have been left behind.
Many Thanks Jan

We thought it was about time we posted something on the Blog again. We had a great day with low wind and the grass was very short. A couple of club members turned up after two hours but where were all the other old gits?
