Is there another food-and-flying festival anywhere else in the country, I wonder? It’s an excellent combination! I’m very pleased that Chattie will be on show there: shobdonfoodfestival.co.uk
Only a week to go and Ground Crew is busy fixing Chattie’s brakes. New parts arrived from the excellent Dave Hardwick Spares Ltd, specialist for Singer Le Mans parts, so work is carrying on as I write.
Shobdon is a small airfield but has an interesting history – it trained around 2,000 glider pilots in world war two, and launched over 90,000 glider missions.
