Donner und Blitzen..!

Wednesday 5 July was a sunny day but┬áproved to be a downpour in the heart of the club’s leading Test Pilot. His lovely red pride and joy came tumbling out of the sky to hide itself amongst the trees of a distant field.

Even the local livestock were happy to search the long grass

All the members came to the rescue and after a lengthy search found the stricken ex-plane hiding amongst nearby trees.

Look what I’ve found…
This is the important bit…

Mike: I’ve been stuck on this stile for two bluddy hours.
Adrian: Thanks for warming the seat up for me…

But it was all too much for the intrepid Ace. Emotions were running high and Adrian just couldn’t contain himself no longer. The visiting cows were clearly sharing his dismay.

    Ta for good report and pictures of the Red Baron’s arboreal and bovine encounter. Ta to everyone who helped in the search and recovery operation – how could something as big as that, and bright red, simply vanish?? One day the Baron Von Simpson will fly again!! or maybe not.
