Life long ambition fulfilled

The highlight of another busy day at the launch point was a flight by "Grandmother" Bobbie Anderson who was up to celebrate her 90th birthday, she was ably supported by many of her relatives. Bobbie has long held a wish to fly a glider ever since she served as a WAAF at Anglesey during WWII.

After her flight she commented on "what a wonderful experience she had just had" and she could be seen re-enacting the flight for all to see. Its great to see people enjoying themselves so much and that age is no barrier - we wish her a happy birthday and enjoy being 90 years young.

"And then I rolled to the left......."
Some of the more observant amongst you will also notice the new signs that have been erected at the airfield entrance - another example of the great work by the Sales & Marketing team promoting Booker Gliding Club.

Thanks for a fantastic morning guys! We all really enjoyed it (especially Grandma!) you made it a really unforgettable experience. I can't recommend these guys enough - really friendly, nothing was too much trouble (even when there were 14 of us hanging about!)

Thanks again!
Jane (Bobbie's Granddaughter)

The club sign looks super; rather more worrying is the SERCO one next to it.
