July 19

  • Posted on: 1 July 2019

An incredibly busy and very succesful June has created a tangible feeling of momentum within the Squadron and we're buoyed by it.

July looks to be slightly less frenetic, but starts with a trio of our aircraft attending the Capel show which is just to the west of Gatwick airport. In addition we have been confirmed as attending the Southport show in the North West, this gives us a fantastic opportunity to venture further North and display to new crowds. We are also in discussion with a number of other shows which may yet be added to our display calendar.

New acqusitions include a brace of ex Qinetic Gazelles which are currently being "civilianised" these two aircraft have mainly been used for trials of military equipment and have been beautifully maintained - we're certainly looking forward to showing them off in the future.

In the background we've been busy with flight safety meetings, planning fundraising dinners for later in the year, getting on with aircraft husbandry and generally making sure that we can continue to deliver what we set out to.

The Gazelle Squadron is a good place to be!
