Mid July and we're into something of a quiet period. Weston, Medway and of course Yeovilton were immense with huge crowds inspired by the fantastic weather we're enjoying lately.

Images of these event taken by our own photographers can be found in our new photo album feature here. (Or under events in the navigation menu.)

This will be populated with historic events in due course.

Summer's here!

Mid June and the Squadron is fully committed, we've had a fantastic early start to the summer with succesful visits to Abingdon and Shuttleworth and of course a fantastic weekend at RAF 100 at Cosford, where our new pairs display routine was well received.

We recently flew 94 year old Ian Kerr-Bonner, and ex WW2 Glider pilot from Pembroke to Maidstone in order that he could pay his final respects to his lifelong friend Des Page (RIP). It was an absolute privilege for the Squadron, many of whom are ex Army Air Corps to become involved in such an emotional and worthwhile event.

As the show confirmations begin to land on the doormat, it's clear that we will be very busy this year.

Recent weeks has seen a lot of activity in support of our charities, we've hosted an event for BLESMA, we've delivered chocolate and the Easter Bunny to the children at Naomi House and we've facilitated school visits in support of Julia's House.

We've been busy!

We've finished our mandatory ground training for 2018 and are now starting to turn our attention towards adding to our list of display qualified pilots and improving our display routine with an added emphasis on pleasing the photographers amongst you.

We've currently got 3 aircraft fully serviceable with the prospect of a 4th on the horizon. Bourne Park is a cold place at the best of times, however the recent extreme conditions has tested even the hardiest of souls and we applaud loudly the endeavours of our fantastic engineers.
