Layton Edwards

Posted by Patricia Ridger 21/4/2011

Congratulations to Layton Edwards who was sent solo by Mark Ridger on Wednesday. Coincidentally his solo was watched by his wife who had just dropped by on her first visit to the airfield.

Huge thanks must go to the wednesday crew who worked together so well for us to total up 56 launches. Not forgetting Eddie who jumped in and out of the tug all day. Mark and I were hardly out of gliders and your team work was invaluable.

Graham Wadforth

Posted by Tony Kendall 21/1/2010

Congratulations to Major Wadforth who was sent solo in the Falke by Steve Wilkinson on Sunday. 

Under the watchful gaze of the whole flight line he put the Falke through an Eco-wash immediately before departure by taxiing through the second biggest puddle ever recorded. He then executed the slickest landing ever witnessed by the Pocklington massive.... 

Well done Graham.
