30th April
Bryan passed on some interesting news about an addition to the Shuttleworth Collection.

Click the "Speed Six" for more information.

28th April
Whilst out and about on Thursday I picked up a booklet "Airfield Trail, North Kesteven". Interesting in itself but it also put me on to the fact that there had been an RAF Buckminster, (page 8).

Inevitably I had a look at Wikipedia and sure enough it had a mention.
However click here for a map that shows RAF Buckminster North of the B676.

There was a 2nd World War airfield at Saltby, which is now a gliding club and is further North than RAF Buckminster. The gliders and tow aircraft can sometimes be seen from BMFA Buckminster.

Not sure how the above will help PMFC Cloud Tramp flyers when they are at Buckminster for the Peterborough/Auckland Challenge but it is good to have some background about the area.

26th April
To echo Johns recent message:-
"May I just remind you that it's Elfs and Frog juniors at OW in 13th May (C/L bods should be aware of BML's comps as well.) The next PMFC F/F comp, including the Bernie Nichols Trophy Round One on the 15th starting at the new time of 3.30pm, and that the 25" Rubber Vintage postal in under way (cards from me) and it's 4th Area on the 20th. That's not to mention the Nats, of which more later.

Also PMFC Cloud Tramp flyers are now primed for the Peterborough/Auckland Challenge which will take place at BMFA Buckminster sometime before 23rd May. Lets hope for at least one calm day......

24th April
Another enjoyable visit to BMFA Buckminster at the weekend got me thinking about Eaton Bray.

There is a fair bit about the enterprise on the web but one piece I had not seen before comes from "All about the village of Eaton Bray in Bedfordshire". Click the icon for the page, also worth following the link "D.A. Russell and Eaton Bray" that is mentioned.

22nd April
Thanks to Mick for the latest set of front page photographs.

These taken at the first of this seasons club free flight competitions at Ferry Meadows.

Link to previous "Latest Update" pages.

I was curious about the accuracy of these free stats programs,
so started them both on 29th May 2015 and will see if the results coincide.
