Through one of my companies we have become a member of the Bournemouth Air Festival Patrons Club. The donations goes towards the clubs activities, to the air festival and charitable contributions.
I've been to two of their monthly events in the run up to the air festival. One was the ex-Red Arrows pilot Ben Murphy, who was Squadron Leader when disaster struck the festival in the tragic death of pilot Jon Egging, and another was a talk on Charles Rolls (one half of Rolls Royce) and how he took part in an air festival by Hengistbury Head and died in a crash there.
All very interesting and I can't wait till we get a chance to get on board the large Navy vessel that overseas the air festival.
