Formation Flying Session — Sept 2020

In a year when a pandemic of the infectious and possibly lethal Covid 19 virus swept through the world it was almost impossible to organise an event that brought people together. But by Sept the regulations allowed a few people to gather outdoors. After our event it was regulated to six at a time. So with Kemble  running food via the Burger Van and convenience in the Portaloo we were at last set to go. So with an outdoor briefing and sessions on the Friday and Saturday Our heroic band of flyers were ready. They were Roger Hayes, Andy Foan, Robert Miller, Bruce Hutton, Chris Fopp, Steve Baker, Roger Milburn and Dave Jones with Tony Blake as the event secretary. The event also had the strange background of BA’s Boeing747 fleet that had been grounded as few people were flying during the lockdown.
