Brilliant fly-in, one of the best this year because it was so well organised - especially on the R/T end. Pat did a great job in the tower. Food was gorgeous (thanks Kay for all the tea and cakes!). I was going to buy an RV, but now I'm going to buy an RV and a gyrocopter.

No worries. Make sure to check out the demo sequences provided...
