“Thankfully September 2022’s weather was greatly improved over the June event, and on the Saturday we again had a full field. Grateful thanks, as always, to Ray Watts, who organises everything, and also to Simon Thornton, for the endless superb tug flying over the 3 days. Phil Huddlestone also lent his assistance with the setting up, then frustrated the local Buzzard population with his effortless flying of his Eaglehawk model.
In addition to the models, we had 2 full size visitors on the Sunday, in the shape of 2 Eurofox aircraft, G-CIEF, from Mansfield and G-LEPR from Lukesfield, in Kent. Both pilots are avid long-time modellers and regular visitors.
Many thanks to everyone who came to our Aerotow events this year, and donated so generously. I have sent the £1050 collected to the County Air Ambulance Help Appeal, and Ray’s company, Arqiva, will supplement this with a contribution of £250, making £1300 in all.
Hope to see you all again next year.”
