The Flying Monkeys

Serious Flying.......
.......Should be Fun!

Air Races: 29-30.05.2004

Yet again the weather looked like it might wreck the weekend, but we had planned

to go to the Air Races at Bembridge and one way or another we were going!

As it turned out the Weather was VFRable and so G-SE, G-BN and G-MK went.

G-BN flew formation with G-SE via MAY

G-SE....Light Rain / Drizzle

Approaching MAY (2000ft)...think he (Airliner) might be decending for Gatwick...
