I'd rather be flying but......

......... on Sunday 8 June we took Junior HNK to the John Lewis Partnership
'Meet the Neighbours' Summer Fair. It was JLP's first event of this kind so no-one knew what to expect, but since they are just across the M40 from the airfield and we share the same neighbours, it was an opportunity to make friends and influence people.

Sitting in a glider seemed to make quite an impression on the mayor.

And Chris was successful in persuading the police to book a group event, not sure if it was the smooth talking or the hammer.

From 13 to 15 June Wycombe Air Park was closed to make way for AeroExpo. Our hangar became one of the exhibition halls, we set up a stand and parked out the Duo Discus.

We made a number of sales and plenty of useful contacts, a successful weekend, even though we missed what looked like some very good soaring weather.
