Tuesday 8th May 2018, 11.00am, £8
Outing to the Museum of Flight, East Fortune Airfield, Haddington
Club member Tony Bray has very kindly offered to give a tour of the Museum of Flight in Haddington on 8 May. Tony is a volunteer aircraft guide at the Museum and some of you will have attended his lecture at the Club back in 2016. Tony has had a life-long interest in aviation. He first flew in an RAF Chipmunk at 15, and then a year later flew solo in a glider after a week’s gliding course at RAF Linton on Ouse. He has flown in most types of aircraft – fixed wing, helicopters, hot air balloon, an airship over the Boden See, and supersonic in Concorde.
If you wish to join Tony in May then please book your space with the Lauren in the Membership Office on 0131 525 6157.
You will need to make your own way to the Museum for an 11.00am start. There is plenty of parking available and you will be asked to pay your £8 on the day. There is also the Aviator Café if you want to stay for lunch. The tour lasts as long as you want it to be – Tony will be available to show you around and answer questions. If you don’t fancy walking around the site, the airfield explorer can move you from place to place. Helpful if it’s cold or wet!
