Our next strut meeting – Monday 18th December – Tony Shipperlee
This month we have a very special guest Tony Shipperlee. Tony is now 96 years old and used to fly Supermarine Walrus aeroplanes (and others) in the Second World War. I have taken digital pictures from Tony’s prints and found some film as well of Walrus’s in action. We will also have his friend Jeremy Reed who was in the Navy on frigates and our honoury strut member Vice Admiral Ray Rawbone attending. Both Tony and Ray flew from Henstridge in the war.
We start with a meal of lasagne and pudding at 7.00pm – followed by the talk. All for only £7.00
For those flying into Henstridge.
Our advertised “Avoid” areas are the little RED blobs on the noise abatement map. Please do not overfly these.
If possible make left turns when departing from 25… keeping the Marsh Lane Fish ponds on your right. If you are landing on 07. .keep the ponds on your left.
You can find the noise abatement map on the Henstridge Airfield website and in the clubhouse.
