Do I look at the cars or the glid­ers!

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

The sun was shin­ing for a day of clas­sic cars and glid­ing at Squids Gate air­field, near Chal­lock.

Kent Glid­ing Club opened their hang­ers for an open day on Sun­day, and hun­dreds of peo­ple took ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­nity to look around, as well as en­joy­ing the sum­mer sun­shine.

While glid­ers soared silently over­head, vis­i­tors could in­spect some of the many im­pres­sive cars on dis­play.

From a pack of Pan­thers to a cadre of Cadil­lacs, there were mod­els on show to please en­thu­si­asts of a Bri­tish or Amer­i­can per­sua­sion.

Re­porter Tim Collins was among those to try their hand at glid­ing on the day. For a full re­port on his ex­pe­ri­ence, see next week’s Ken­tish Ex­press.
