How air-brained is he?

Pilot - - NOTES -

Long time Pi­lot con­trib­u­tor and quiz­mas­ter-inchief James Al­lan has cel­e­brated his 90th birth­day by get­ting air­borne in yet an­other type, bring­ing his to­tal flown to 68. His birth­day also co­in­cided with the an­niver­sary of his first solo at Perth in 1945 when he was a mem­ber of the Glas­gow Uni­ver­sity Air Squadron. To mark the oc­ca­sion Dai Heather-hayes and Scot­tish Aero Club Pres­i­dent Mike Ash­mole awarded James with a life­time mem­ber­ship cer­tifi­cate, then Mike and James once again got ac­quainted with the skies above Perth in Mike’s Maule MT-7. The Scot­tish Aero Club is just one year older than James.
