Impromptu fly for Howard


This evening a few us went up onto the moor for an impromptu fly and to chat about our time spent with Howard Mansley. To our surprise his family came up and joined us, which made for a really special flying session, even if the flying conditions were not great the company was and it was really nice to meet and talk to them all.

Howard Mansley

It is with much sadness that I have to report to you that Howards Mansley’s condition has deteriorated. To be blunt the latest news is that Howard has only weeks to live in his current condition, he is to undergo some treatment over the next few days but at best this may only give him an extra week or so.

Howard and his family would like to welcome visitors to visit Howard at his bed side on Bexley wing St James to talk about the good times we have had over the years.

Other venues to fly at.

A lot of our members whilst our quite happy to just fly up on Harden Moor which is quite fine, I would like to remind you that there are over venues available to you locally where you can go to test your flying skills. One of them is RAF Dishforth, a great venue with tarmac runways and loads of open space plus loads of open dates. Click Here for more information.

Also coming up is an invite from Terry Lee at Pontefract, see below.

It is just over a month to our first ‘Northern Area Fly-in’ to be held at the Pontefract clubs site (on Pontefract racecourse). All clubs in the area are invited to come along & enjoy yourselves. Its just a friendly get together & fly your models – any type except large jets (as they tend to fly outside our boundary). We may also have some night flying on the Saturday! It is to be held over two days – 22nd & 23rd July 2017 & camping is available over Saturday night (please book your pitch). A BBQ & teas/coffee will be available throughout both days.
