With a little subterfuge, I took great delight in inviting Adam Roberts, a good friend of the Historic Flight, to the annual symposium of the Historic Aircraft Association (HAA), supposedly for a side-bar meeting about an upcoming project (more on that later)… little did he know that he would be awarded a trophy that day!
We returned to the Farnborough International Airshow this year on Friday 22nd July 2022. The day was themed “Pioneers of Tomorrow”… it was the last day of the show and was dedicated to being an exciting showcase of the very best in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM)…
June 26th, 7am, 8 seconds of fuel priming, 9 checklist items, press the start button, and the sound of the Sioux engine purrs across Middle Wallop airfield.

Two Surrey schools were in for a treat on Friday 13th of May when they were visited by a team from the Historic Army Aircraft Flight and Boeing to talk about careers in engineering and aerospace.
One lucky winner at a recent Boeing UK charity raffle, in aid of the Prince’s Trust, won a flight in the mighty Bell 47 Sioux helicopter on a re-enactment of how the Sioux would have been flown on operations in the jungle during the 1960’s and 70’s.
