A little gem from Mum!

In 1985 my mother was 64 and, despite Dad having been a wartime pilot and post war glider pilot, she had never been up in a glider .... so there she was on the ground in Benalla, just back from her TIF, thrilled to bits ....

 

"He even let me have a go with the levers and footrests" ....

 

A note I just found in one of my old log books ..... and yes, it was me that "let her have a go"!

That must have been in Ed McKeough's time at GCV!

Hi KazYe ...es, more Charlie Lambert, but I think Ed and Pat were still around ... I don't think it was long afterwards that Ed passed away, I knew of him more than knew him, if you know what I mean ...
