The Pitts story

Pilot - - PITTS MODEL 12: PART TWO -

I en­joyed read­ing the April 2019 Pi­lot ar­ti­cle on the mas­sive Pitts 12 built by Peter Borchert from ba­sic parts. How­ever, I think that there is an er­ror on page 34 when Peter said he met Nick Grace in 1989. Nick Grace was sadly killed in a road ac­ci­dent on 14 Oc­to­ber 1988, aged 52. I am the same age; we were both born in 1936.

For twenty years I was a sup­porter of Car­olyn Grace, who soloed ML407, the Grace Spit­fire at White Waltham in 1990. Car­olyn fi­nally closed the Sup­port­ers Group in 2017, but Richard Grace con­tin­ues to dis­play ML407, which is based at Sy­well. John Mor­ley, Guild­ford

Peter replies: I’m sorry, I should have checked this be­fore. My flight with Nick Grace was in De­cem­ber 1985
