Royal Air Force Centenary

Unfortunately, work commitments take me out of the country from tomorrow onwards including1 April 2018, so I am no longer able to participate in the planned flying activities (Bulldog and Chipmunk formation at RAF Henlow) in celebration of the RAF Centenary. So, I grabbed an hour of decent weather this morning on the Isle of Man, and flew my ex-RAF Bulldog TMk1 as a minor personal tribute. See photos.

I have the privilege of having been taught to fly by the Royal Air Force at the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde Air Squadron back in the 1980s.

...and yesterday's tragic events at RAF Valley are a stark reminder of the risks taken ever day on our behalf...
