Hi Brian, Can't put a face to your name. I first went to Upavon on 9th July 1961 and was active in the club until mid November, as I was stationed at waterbeach and started flying at Duxford then.

Hope you are well and still flying. Chris (micro)

re: Moonrakers Soaring Club, RAFGSA

Reply to @ChrisM: We must have met. I went solo during that year. I was introduced by fellow Hull guys Colin Wray and David Ellis. We were on Fitters (Wireless and Radar) courses at Yatesbury. I hope you see this blog, as I see your entry is back in 2011! I remember one day, flying was suspended when some Groupie came with his autogiro and gave a demo. I understand it was used by him in Bond films. Brian Norton.

Moonrakers Soaring Club, RAFGSA

This is where I learned to fly with John Williamson (CFI) and friends, in 1961.
