OTLEY AND DISTRICT MENíS FORUM
16th Feb 2017
It was unfortunate that our planned speaker
was not with us due to indisposition. However, our Registrar, Mick
Hutchinson, kindly stepped into the breach at very short notice. His talk
was about flying and his first slide show took us to an open day at the
display of vintage aircraft at the Shuttleworth collection in
Bedfordshire. It was interesting to see such flimsy aircraft were still
able to fly! Mick had owned and had qualified as a microlight pilot and
his film showed him flying from a very small strip near to Sutton Bank. He
had flown as far as Ireland and the South of France on his trips and still
operates as a co pilot from time to time.
Our next speaker is Peter Higginbotham on March 2nd.The title of his talk is"Please sir I want some more". The venue is as usual at the Methodist church at 10 am. If you are new to Otley, please come along. Our meeting finishes at about 11 o'clock with coffee and biscuits. You will be welcomed.
