Over the August Bank Holiday we visited Pembrey airfield in Pembrokeshire for a camping and flying training weekend and the outcome exceeded everyone's wildest dreams.

Co-incidentally the Raven Display Team were also using Pembrey to practise their very impressive routine in their privately owned Van RV's and a chance comment at breakfast on Sunday led to the concept of us getting together for some combined aerial formation work.

There is unprecedented activity behind the scenes within the Squadron but unfortunately most of it is still yet to be confirmed so we can't share it just yet.

Show confirmations are slowly beginning to roll in as organisers finalise budgets, themes and venues.

We'd like to apologise for being somewhat lax in updating the website in recent months, but we've certainly been busy in other areas.

The end of last season was impacted upon heavily by the poor weather with a number of events cancelled due to the late summer storms causing it to peter out in a particularly undramatic manner.

In November we enjoyed a highly succesful fundraising black tie dinner in London with Tim Peak and David Hempleman-Adams as guest speakers and of course in early December we had our Christmas Party.
