Could this be the picture Joe Cleland (Airmail September) might have taken, had he had his camera with him? I think I took it at Elstree in April 1981.
I was a very lowly student PPL in — I’m guessing now — 1978 when Spencer (Flack) offered me a trip in his Sea Fury. What he didn’t tell me was that he was booked to do a display at Hatfield. The experience nearly killed my desire to be a pilot. All Spence said on our return was, “did you like that”? If I made a reply, it would certainly be unprintable.
Keep up the good work. I have been reading Pilot for about forty years. Brian Murray
PS I’m still a lowly PPL aged eighty-five
