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

Starlight 2007 - Popham: 16.08.07


Starlight Children’s Foundation Day


 Held at Popham Airfield – Thursday 16th August 2007



A Flying Monkey escapes from the day job, grabs his aeroplane (G-SIXD)

and spends the day with 30 other pilots flying for the Starlight Foundation.


The Starlight Children's Foundation brightens the lives of seriously and terminally ill children,by granting their wishes

and providing hospital entertainment to help take their minds off the pain, fear and isolation of their illness. 



Martin Payne was the Flying Monkey involved and had the most fantastic day,

flying 9 flights of between 4 & 5 children plus helpers/parents.

Flight 1 - Julia, Olivia, Emily, Jessica

Flight 2 - Kate, Luke, Andrew & Joanne

Flight 3 - Wendy, Adam, Michael & Melonie

Flight 4 - Brendan, Sarah & Olivia

Flight 5 - Karem & Clarisa

Flight 6 - Pheobe, Hannah & Parents

Flight 7 - Sam & Lumai

Flight 8 - Brandon, Daniel, Sue & Tracy

All thoroughly enjoyed their flights. Below are some of the pictures from the day.










Groups of Hell's Angels were also on hand to give rides on their 'hogs'.
