Bett's 60th Birthday party at Leicester Aero Club (EBGB) - 5th /6th Jan 2008

Event: Surprise 60th Birthday Party for Bett.

Venue: Leicester Aeroclub

3 Airplanes, 14 pilots and passengers, luggage (althoigh only one night!) Champagne....oh and a mobile disco.

The largest airlift of people and equipment by The Flying Monkeys so far!.

We are gonna need a bigger plane soon...C130?

Anyhow, following some ferrying in MK and BN to/from Thurrock to EGSX,

we departed for Leicester around 1300.

After landing, some setup (disco) and ofcourse some refreshment we headed back to the hotel to change,

before returning for the party!!

A good time was had by all...especially the Karaoke crew!
