Pembrey 2020

  • Posted on: 1 September 2020

Over the August Bank Holiday we visited Pembrey airfield in Pembrokeshire for a camping and flying training weekend and the outcome exceeded everyone's wildest dreams.

Co-incidentally the Raven Display Team were also using Pembrey to practise their very impressive routine in their privately owned Van RV's and a chance comment at breakfast on Sunday led to the concept of us getting together for some combined aerial formation work.

The idea was followed by some extensive planning, risk assessments, aircraft familiarisation sorties, numerous briefings and superb skill from all involved to produce, at the first attempt, a combined rotary and fixed wing formation comprising 8 aircraft.

Naturally we hope to continue to work with both The Ravens and Tim over the coming months and take the 2021 airshow season by the scruff of the neck......
