Hello JOYSTICKERS. www.joystickclub.co.uk
We had a good time at Blackbushe on Saturday, lots going on including a privately owned North American Bronco in German markings flown in from Belgium.
Aerobility volunteers gave us a great pitch for our Kit and we made enough to give a suitable donation and cover our expenses.
Next project has just arrived via John Baker from the US, a plan of an F15 .
Perhaps we can make a Typhoon ...any offers?
Next time the Pedal Planes will be shown will be at RAF BENSON Families Day and then WLAC's Members Day on the 3rd Sept.
Our final low level display of the year will be at Brooklands Aviation Day on Sunday 25th Sep.
However Goodwood on Thursday, hopefull for good weather.
A full list of our other events and talks for the coming season and 2017 for your diaries......
